Company Programme Company of The Year
A very popular part of the Company Programme experience is taking part in the YE Company of the Year Competition.
Students showcase their student companies and it is a valuable learning experience, even for those who do not win and advance to further rounds of the competition.
Showcase events are usually held in March or April.
This Showcase involves four components:
- preparing a report
- sharing links to digital platforms & content
- an interview with the judges
- delivering a short presentation.
Up to two companies will be selected from each Showcase to progress on to the next round of the Company of the Year Competition, and moving through a series of competitions at county, regional, national and ultimately, European level.
As well as choosing an overall winning company, the judges present several other awards at each of these events, and details of these awards will be communicated as part of the individual event details.
Student company trading
Student companies are encouraged to seek out peak trading opportunities throughout the year and maximise their sales by promoting their Trading Station presence. Not only can they create valuable sales opportunities but they also develop confidence, communication, planning and selling skills.
