Enterprise at Mount Carmel

What is Enterprise?

At Mount Carmel we strive to instil the message that Enterprise in education is providing young people with the opportunities to share their creativity and innovation across the curriculum. Enterprise learning is about nurturing and enhancing their intrinsic drive for self-expression and developing skills that meet their needs. Activity engagement heightens when a student’s willingness and interest are acknowledged and used as a motivational tool for self-realisation. We want students to channel their positive energies into developing new ideas, step out of the box and be heard.

Mount Carmel has an Enterprise motto: Think it, Do it, Believe it.

Mount Carmel is proud to be affiliated with GGP, a scheme offering our young
eco warriors fantastic opportunities. Visit GLOBAL GENERATION PROGRAMME

Speak up and Speak Out

GEW is an opportunity for students to be Young Entrepreneurs and express their ideas, energy, inspirations and creativity by getting involved in Enterprise and by pitching and selling innovation in a number of Dragons Den Style events. The college takes part in the Global Entrepreneurship week each November and was awarded the prestigious Outstanding Impact Award both in 2010, 2012 and has just received it again this year for successfully running motivational and impactful events. This year, in conjunction with The Big Local Lottery Funded Project and Anti-Bullying Week, students took part in two themed activities. Activity 1 on Wednesday 20th - Design a logo which highlights the Dangers of the Internet and Activity 2, Think Out Loud, on Thursday 21st – Create a logo for The Big Local Project. Hazal Unek’s winning design for activity 1 will be printed on to badges and sold in the LRC.

The guest Dragon was Eric Molyneux. Eric is responsible for service and user experience design of websites and mobile applications across the whole of Vodafone Global Group. He said “the positive energy generated throughout the event was impressive and it is wonderful to observe students positively engage and support one another.”


Think Out Loud

The Big Local Project

14 students entered the Dragons Den style event, pitching and selling an array of colourful and positive messages to the panel of Dragons which consisted of local entrepreneurs. Students shared their insightful ideas with the panel but after much deliberation, Our year 10 student's ‘Gift of Youth’ design was chosen to represent the Elthorne Big Local Project. Her design will appear all publications relating to Elthorne local project. The logo signifies trust, hope and positive change. Ameena McConnell, a local artist, resident and co-organiser of the event said, “Mount Carmel College is a real 'hothouse' of design, creativity and talent. Now we want to capture the ideas and enthusiasm of our local young people so they can have a real say in the future of Elthorne
