NBP16 Young Enterprise Success!

Year 12 Young Enterprise students from the North Bristol Post 16 Centre are celebrating victory after being placed second in the West of England for their project this year. The team also picked up the award for 'Best Teamwork' during the area finals last week. The students delivered an engaging pitch to an audience of 200 people and created a feel-good atmosphere in what was a jam packed evening. Our very own dynamic chef Danny Romero had the audience in stitches with his energy and zest for cooking... and life generally!

 

The students won the awards for Best Teamwork and came runners up for the whole of the West of England with their product, The Cooking Atlas, which is a self-published cookbook encompassing dishes and recipes from their family cultures, celebrating the diversity of the group and the North Bristol Post 16 Centre as a whole. Students had previously cleaned up at the regional finals, winning three of the five awards available, including best business.

Seeing the students talk so passionately about their Young Enterprise journey was the proudest moment for staff coach Kelly McDonagh, who said "Yes, there had been some struggles along the way but the students were articulate in the delivery of their presentation and demonstrated how their resilience got them to be recognised as one of the stand out groups in the competition this year."


The Managing Director, Renwar Karim was a real driving force for the team, without his passion, enthusiasm and grit The Cooking Atlas brand would not exist. He drove forward in his vision and made sure it became a reality. A huge well done must also go to Aman Kaur, Alan Kalbarczyk, Danny Romero, James Jagmohan and Will Thurkettle who attended the event at Bristol and Bath Science Park during the same week as their mock exams. Fantastic commitment shown by all.


There are still copies of The Cooking Atlas available to purchase. If you'd like to buy one, please get in touch with Miss McDonagh (mcdonaghk@cotham.bristol.sch.uk).
