New student enterprise the Irresistible Cupcake Company is launched!

We have set up the Irresistible Cupcake Company, the latest addition to the innovative enterprise learning environment. The students have a great reputation across RNIB for their fantastic cakes and this is now being taken to the next level with a professional cupcake business. Student's visit the Happy Hens farm for their work placement, collect and count the eggs before they are date stamped, packed up and brought back to College. Students build their numeracy and literacy skills through counting, measuring, writing recipes and customer orders. COST, the student office, creates ingredient labels and use by dates for the packaging. The College now supplies three local cafés and we've even made our first wedding cake!
