WHAT IS THE COMPANY PROGRAMME?
The Company Programme is where you (a 6th form student) will learn how to take a business idea from concept to reality.
Supported by expert volunteer’s and advisers from the local business community, you will learn to take responsibility for the success of your company and gain skills in:
- Financial control
The programme runs from October to May and is broken up into three modules - Module 1, Module 2 and Module 3.
A certificate of participation is awarded to all students (Achievers) who complete the programme.
The Company Programme culminates in the HSBC Company of the Year Finals and Awards night when the best performing JAYE Malta mini-company is announced as the winner of the national competition.
