Bloor Homes has been working with a group of sixth form students from Hedingham School as part of the Enterprise Challenge scheme.

The “Apprentice” style event saw teams of pupils set business challenges by a number of companies, requiring them to come up with solutions and ideas in just 24 hours.

The Year 12 Hedingham School students who worked with Bloor Homes visited the housebuilder’s Earl’s Garden development in Sible Hedingham where they learned about the buying process for a new home, including details of the Help to Buy and Home Exchange schemes that Bloor offers.

They were then tasked to provide three new marketing leaflets for the development.

Monika Hanlon, regional sales director at Bloor Homes Eastern, said: “This was an extremely ambitious challenge and I am delighted to say the pupils absolutely sailed through it.

“In 24 hours, they produced excellent marketing leaflets, individual business cards, QR codes and even recorded a Bloor Homes jingle, which was fantastic.

“The challenge culminated with a presentation by the entire team to myself and other judges on everything they had done for the Enterprise Challenge. Throughout it I was struck by the professionalism, the teamwork and the commitment they showed to the challenge.”
