For the last 8 weeks class 4B have been taking the business module with Ms McCawley. During this module we have covered various topics including entrepreneurs, marketing, skills required to be an effective entrepreneur and problems which may arise in the work place.
We each presented a slideshow presentation on our chosen successful entrepreneur. We also looked at claims made by employees made in the work place in regards to unfair treatment or dismissal. We also watched episodes of the apprentice where we learned about real life marketing and the problems which arise between different people.
Near the end of the module we took a short exam on the marketing section of the business module. We were graded on our presentation and our exam results. It was a very enjoyable module and opened our eyes to the world of business, it also gave us an insight into what studying business for leaving cert would be like.
