keyfact Horsham District

GCSE attainment amongst 15 year old boys and girls in the District is higher than the regional average. In 2008/09 72% of boys and 82% of girls living in Horsham achieved five A*-C grades at GCSE or equivalent. This compares with 66% and 74% respectively in the South East region as a whole.

Students work with real-life entrepreneurs!

The Crawley, Horsham and Mid-Sussex branch of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) launched its campaign to champion 'Real-Life Entrepreneurs' at its FSB Village event, held in Crawley's Civic Hall on 26 November.

The event, billed as 'A free one-stop exhibition for small businesses' offered advice and information to local entrepreneurs looking to expand their business and improve their chances of success through effective planning.

There to photograph the event on behalf of the FSB were Central Sussex College Media students Paul Horscraft, 19, from Bewbush and Louis Ste.Marie, 16, from Bewbush, who are both Level 1 students at the Crawley campus. Their photos have since been used on the FSB website.

Paul said: "It was an amazing opportunity. I would love to run my own business in the future, so by being there, we not only gained practical experience of the requirements of photographing a business event, but also got to meet local entrepreneurs who have already launched their own companies, which was really useful."

Ann Swain, Chairman of the Crawley, Horsham & Mid Sussex Branch of the FSB said: "We have worked with media students from the College before and it is lovely to be able to give them a really business-like project to get stuck into."

John Walker, the FSB's National Chairman, added: "It is a great pleasure to be at the Start-up Show as it demonstrates to those who want to be real-life entrepreneurs how to tap into the support that already exists in the local community, and reinforces our belief that entrepreneurship can help lift people out of poverty and really inspire communities!

It was splendid to meet Paul, Louis and Don Allen and to hear how the College is actively seeking real projects for its students so that they can consider setting up a business as an alternative to the university pathway."
