Two PJEA students at Leicester College have joined forces (and names) to create HOSH, a business selling hot drinks and pastries, as part of Trading Week at Leicester College between 20-25 March. The week saw students demonstrate their customer service and transactional skills by setting up stalls selling goods or services to staff and students.
Calling all ambitious PJEA students - the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy Awards are just around the corner! The Awards are the highlight of our calendar and a celebration of the incredible work students undertake throughout the year.
The event is particularly exciting for those shortlisted for the National Entrepreneur of the Year Award, the most prestigious award available to students at the PJEA Awards.
Jessica’s business, the Hair Bears, is described as a start-up that is “as much about helping people as it is about generating revenue.”
Former Peter Jones Enterprise Academy student Jacob Knowles started his own business, Empine Printing, just over 18 months ago. The company prints a wide variety of collateral, from stationery and signs to marketing materials and calendars.
Recently, Jacob has extended his business into new markets with Empine Education, a service dedicated to printing personalised educational materials, such as exercise books and prospectuses.
