Enterprising Telford students

As part of the national Young Enterprise scheme, local business students successfully set up – and are currently managing – an environmentally friendly crafts company. Glow Up Décor, a company selling handcrafted goods, is the brainchild of the Telford College students taking part in the scheme.

The Young Enterprise programme works with schools and colleges to equip students with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to manage money and risk, hosting talks, workshops and events.

Mandeep Singh, a joint-founder of the company, said, “All of our products are unique, handmade and environmentally-friendly. We’ll be competing with different schools, sixth forms and colleges at the end of the project, where we’ll be assessed.”

Tutor Gavin Real said, “The team are formed of both academic and vocational students. From the beginning, where we challenged them to raise capital from nothing through to board meetings and selling opportunities, the company has impressed in every way.”
