What is Champions of Enterprise?

A range of organisations pose real-life business challenges to Year 12 students, who work in teams to solve them. The programme engages students with a real-life business challenge and helps students realise the importance and significance of challenges faced by businesses today.

The competition is supported by business experts who volunteer to assist the students participating. Business volunteers mentor students and help them prepare to present their solutions. Students develop business understanding, teamwork time management, research/analysis and decision making skills as well as presentation confidence. As an inter-school competition, the winner is decided at a grand final in December.
