Ysgol Coedcae School

Pupils exchange the classroom for a car show room.

Year 10 pupils studying for their Business coursework visited Trainer Mini in Swansea to find out about business communications. Pupils were very excited to change their normal class room setting to a hip and trendy car show room, full of shiny brand new, top of the range Minis.

Trainer, Mini were more than happy to welcome Coedcae pupils into its showroom on Wednesday 12th December. Paul Richard, Marketing Manager and Tom Davies, Sales Executive, told pupils all about the business and how it communicated with potential and existing customers.

On arriving, pupils were quickly encouraged to try out the cars. Pupils couldn’t believe their luck. Pupils took it in turns to sit in the various Minis. Pupils clearly relished this experience.

Pupils then interviewed Paul and Richard on various aspects of the business. Coedcae pupils were great ambassadors of the school and all Mini staff complimented them on their maturity and conduct during the visit.
Now, back to the classroom, pupils have the important job of writing up their findings which will form part of their coursework.
