Start Up Success
Learners explored the world of enterprise by setting up and running their own Start Up Greeting Cards company. Over the course of the challenge, the learners were Working in a Team to manage a production line and sell a new range of greetings cards. In particular, teams had to use their Problem Solving skills to ensure that everyone in their team had contributed to final design and creation of their new greetings cards. As the clock ticked away, teams raced to outdo their competitors and produce as many high quality, creative cards as possible.
