Teeenwork to represent Cornwall


Teenwork Cornwall from Treviglas College, Newquay, has won the Company of the Year title at the 2017 Young Enterprise Cornwall Innovation Awards.

The Year 10 team will now go through to next month’s south west regional finals in Gloucestershire on 14 June.

The entrepreneurial group of youngsters’ winning idea was to set up a web-based recruitment service to help local teenagers find part-time work. They also won the ‘Most Innovative Product’ and ‘Best Marketing and Social Media’ trophies and were runners-up in the ‘Best Company Report’ and ‘Best Presentation’ categories.

Kim Conchie, chief executive of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, was one of the judges. He commented:  “We were all very impressed with Teenwork’s passion for their product, their success in promoting it widely and the way they have organised themselves.

“The Young Enterprise company programme is an excellent way of developing key business skills and we wish the Treviglas College team every success in the next round. They are certainly young people to watch in the future.”

Ten teams from schools and colleges around Cornwall took part in the finals which was held in St John’s Hall, Penzance.
