BDA Enterprise at QPR

Mr Goorah: The Year 10 Enterprise team visited QPR this week to speak to several high profile individuals who work behind the scenes of W12s most successful club.

Adam, Ali, Bashir & Redwan (all 10B, pictured) met with the Customer Relationship Manager and the Head of Customer Service of QPR to understand how the football club is run, in order to help them with the nationwide Premier League Enterprise Challenge (PLEC) which they will be entering on behalf of BDA.

The PLEC tasks students aged 14-19 with developing possible solutions to real-life challenges that football clubs face. The Challenge is the annual highlight of the Premier League Enterprise Academy (PLEA), a programme giving young people a unique insight into the running of professional football clubs, learning by using real business examples drawn from their club.

The BDA Enterprise Team will be going up against several other challengers from local schools and societies at the Club heats on Thursday 13th February with the winners going on to represent QPR at the regional semi finals at Aston Villa. The winners of this will then meet the winners from the other regional final at Wembley.

Last year BDA reached the semi finals of the Challenge, but will be looking to go one better this year... Que sera sera!
