On 13th February 90 year 10 students from Glebelands School gained an invaluable insight into the world of work when they took part in the SATRO Business Game. Teams of students became stationery companies for the day manufacturing booklets which they had to sell to a discerning panel of buyers. The game stretched their minds and abilities in a way they never thought possible. They had a myriad of business decisions to make as the game unfolded and were aided in their tasks by a number of business volunteers whose job it was to guide, support and encourage their teams as they got to grips with all the challenges inherent in running a business.

The stress levels were high as companies competed with each other to see who could make the most profit. Many valuable life skills were learnt with many students commenting, “The tight time schedules and negotiating was difficult; I learnt about social skills and team work.”
Our business volunteers also greatly enjoyed the experience with one stating – “My first experience of a business game, I was very impressed with how the teams threw themselves into the task, with little urging required… it was great to work with such enthusiastic groups!”
