Our Parents

Our parents have been so supportive to over the years and always talk to us about the positive impact our programmes have on their children. But don’t just take our word for it, here is feedback from one student’s Mum.

A Parent’s Perspective

There are a number of key learnings which Rachel took away from the Young Enterprise experience and the best way I can capture these are by describing them as core life skills. These included learning how to work as part of a team, how to budget, how to plan and schedule tasks and how to deal with any potential disagreements in the team.

She was challenged to learn quickly though; there were late night skype calls, impromptu meetings, planning for trade exhibitions etc. She discovered skills she never knew she had, one of which was an ability to lead and motivate others, which came to light when she was voted as CEO, where she had to make decisions and give guidance, all without the support of an adult.

It was a turning point for her though, and one she references quite regularly. The life skills she developed were invaluable. Firstly, when she moved to Glasgow to study her business degree at the University of Glasgow, and secondly when again she moved to Dublin to take up a role in an American Trading company.

I am exceptionally proud of Rachel; her fierce determination and her belief that their team would solve any issue that arose, spurred me on too on occasions, to do exactly the same! She loved the thrill of competing, and was delighted with their best newcomer award. It also really allowed her to make the link between her A level business studies and the ‘real world’.

The support she received from the teachers at Lagan College was fantastic, offering flexibility and opportunity to Rachel. This practical and realistic approach to learning really helped Rachel’s confidence soar, which resulted in a first place award in the UK from CCEA for her A level Business Studies.
