The internal assessments are all research and group based and cover marketing as well as setting up and running a small business through the Young Enterprise Scheme to (hopefully) make a profit.

This final year is a year for the entrepreneurs to have a low risk go at running their own business then using this as a springboard to something bigger and better or going to university to specialise.
