First years, second years and transition years attended the Student Enterprise induction day in the Armada Hotel last week. The girls were encouraged to take their learning experiences outside the classroom by creating ideas, transforming them into opportunities and converting them into real businesses.We are looking forward to hearing all their bright business ideas over the coming weeks.
A record number of over 1,000 students from across County Clare will participate in this year’s Student Enterprise Programme, a national initiative organised locally by Local Enterprise Office Clare.
Student Enterprise Programme judge Siobhan Mulcahy, Clare County Council Arts Officer, Charlie Glynn from Kilrush-based Glynn Technical Diamonds Ltd. and Declan Murphy from Sixmilebridge-based Clubify spoke about the steps required to establish and nurture a successful business.
Students will compete in three categories, namely Senior Category (Transition Year, 4th Year, 5th Year, 6th Year & Youthreach Students), Intermediate Category (2nd Year & 3rd Year Students) and Junior Category (1st Year Students).
The winning enterprises will represent County Clare at the National Student Enterprise Final for 2019 on Friday 3 May 2019 in Croke Park in Dublin.
