The Hot Seat
The Hot Seat is an online software that requires the student to run their own football club. They will need to appoint a manager, buy in players, organise merchandise to sell, set ticket prices, monitor budgets, manage the football stadium etc. Simulated games are played and results will depend on how well the student has organised their club. Each club is monitored to see whose club is becoming the most successful and the students are able to track this through the software.

The Coombe Apprentice Club is calling for budding entrepreneurs! Pupils will work in groups and lead their team to success in a given project. Each half term they will be given a different business idea to start up. They will spend each session creating a new product, pricing it, making advertising campaigns (which if successful and with parental permission may be published on YouTube) and presenting their ‘pitches’ to the other groups.This will give pupils an invaluable opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills, meet new people, improve their teamwork and communication and experience life as a young businessman.
