ESOL Business and Finance students at Southwark College prepared, advertised and sold homemade food and snacks as their final project.

The project required students to create a business plan, estimate costs, advertise the event, and run their stalls. After, the students will log their data and calculate the profit made. The project was the last in the academic year for students, bringing together the language and communication skills gained throughout the year and putting them into practice within a business framework.

Mark Hillman, Vice Principal at Southwark College, said: “I have been extremely impressed with the quality of food presented by our ESOL students and the level of preparation and planning that has gone into the sales event. I look forward to seeing the students return in September to continue their education journey with us.”

Selinay Dzhindzhan, ESOL Business and Finance student, said: “We have been working on the food sale project for three weeks. First, we got into groups and decided what we wanted to sell in the College. We decided on pain au chocolat, lemon danish pastries, and hot drinks. Other groups from the Dominican Republic are selling homemade food for example. Then we created a business plan as we need to earn money to make a profit. We also analysed the materials required and priced the items from there. With the profit made together, we are going to buy a present for our teacher!”
