Cadbury World Trip

On the 28th November 2017, Mr Muir and Mr Brown took their Year 9 Retail Business class to Cadbury World to experience every aspect of a major company at work.

Although there were opportunities for the students to purchase chocolate items of every description and to enjoy a 4D Chocolate Adventure, they soon got down to the serious part of the visit.

The first stop was a series of fascinating audio-visual presentations which detailed the history of Cadbury, how the chocolate is made and how they established themselves as a business and grew over time.

They then had a 1 hour talk given by the Head of Education, who gave them background information on the business operations of Cadbury and they learnt about the operational functions behind the company.
 
The students got involved with this discussion and contributed to it, using their prior knowledge from their Retail Business lessons. While at the facility students also completed a booklet that they could use to support as evidence for their subject portfolio.

“What a fantastic trip it was and superbly organised by Mr Muir! Despite the really long journey time, there and back, the students behaved extremely well and were a credit to the Academy.  I was proud to accompany the trip as their first aider!” – Mrs Lambert
