Business in the outdoors

The following section will revolve around creating an outdoor based business that will enable us to raise funds for our expeditions and trips.  We will be looking at what businesses we could set up, how we can run it efficiently, roles and responsibilities and the concepts of  profit, loss and turnover.

By the end of the section students should have a clear understanding of what it takes to run a business, how to set one up and the work it takes to make it run efficiently.  The lessons will be run in the style of ‘The Apprentice’ with students facing new business challenges each week.

Topics we will cover are as follows:
