Budding young businessmen and women are running their own stall at Epping Town Council's weekly Monday market.

Year 10 business students at Epping St John’s School have gone through a Dragon’s Den style process pitching their ideas to a panel of teachers to ask for a budget of up to £100. 

Ideas have included artificial flowers, make-up, electrical items and photo frames.

The five successful teams are trading at the market for five weeks.

Deputy headteacher Sahbi Benzid said: “Students have had to work out their pricing structure, produce marketing posters and establish how to show their products on the market stall.

“This is all about giving students an opportunity to learn about business by experiencing it for themselves. They are learning about setting up a business, understanding pricing and communicating with customers.

“This is the first time we have taken on a market stall for our students. The manager of the market will be mentoring our students and supporting them through the experience."

“It’s good to show that we are able to be organised a stall and be responsible."

The students say they have gained experience selling products to the public, interacting with customers and working in a team.

Money raised through the venture is going to Cancer Research UK.

Epping Town Council clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "We are delighted to welcome students on to our market. We feel it will be a valuable learning experience for them and it is a pleasure to have them.”
