Bright young sparks show off their skills

Stu­dents sell­ing unique prod­ucts which they de­vel­oped them­selves

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Amer­sham & Wy­combe Col­lege’s stu­dents on the Peter Jones En­ter­prise Academy (PJEA) course will be sell­ing their unique prod­ucts which they de­vel­oped them­selves.

From skate­boarder jew­ellery to fit­ness CDs, the lo­cal young en­trepreneurs are hop­ing peo­ple will come down to the market on March 8 to see their di­verse range of prod­ucts.

Course leader Caro­line Bartholomew is ex­cited about this ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity for the stu­dents.

“It’s im­por­tant for us to get out from be­hind closed doors and show the lo­cal com­mu­nity first what our young en­trepreneurs are work­ing on,” she said.

“The feed­back they get from Che­sham Market will re­ally help them de­velop their prod­ucts and ideas.”

Rochelle Cross, 16, of Che­sham, is hop­ing the range of mo­ti­va­tional CDs and DVDs she de­vel­oped at the col­lege will prove pop­u­lar with the town’s res­i­dents.

She said: “Com­ing to Che­sham Market with a new prod­uct is a great way to test the pub­lic’s re­sponse. I’ll be of­fer­ing some­thing they don’t have at the market, so I hope it’ll be of in­ter­est.”

On top of Rochelle’s prod­uct, an­other stu­dent Gemma Faulkner, 16, will be sell­ing hand­made hair ac­ces­sories, while Harry McCarthy, 17, will be sell­ing fairy lights.

Sam Judd, 17, of Amer­sham, said the PJEA course was a life-chang­ing de­ci­sion for him af­ter he stud­ied his GCSEs at Che­sham Gram­mar school.

He said: change.

“I didn’t want to go into the sixth form.

“I wanted to study busi­ness and I es­pe­cially liked the sound of the Peter Jones En­ter­prise Academy course. It sounded “I needed a cool – to have your own busi­ness idea, which you could grow whilst also study­ing the the­ory of busi­ness.”

On top of sell­ing their prod­ucts, their stall will of­fer the chance for market-go­ers to learn more about the PJEA course at Amer­sham & Wy­combe Col­lege.
