Business trip to Cadbury World
Business students study market research, production and customer service as part of the course, so a chance to visit the Cadbury World theme park/factory provided an ideal opportunity to see how an international organisation meets the needs of a mass market target audience.
The pupils started the day with an engaging seminar in which they learnt about how businesses impact on the local and national economy. This was followed by a tour of the factory. The pupils were able to adopt the role of a factory worker in the production of chocolate and they experiment with their own unique and original recipes. When the pupils were in the factory, they saw how much of the chocolate was produced using automation. At different stages they were given samples of the chocolate to taste, this was a highlight to all of the pupils!
The day was a huge success and the pupils are already looking forward to their next visit to another business in the future.
