A Level Business Students visit BMW Mini Factory

The A Level Business students went to the BMW Mini Factory on Friday 11th July for a tour of the Mini production facility accompanied by Mr. Alovisetti and Mr. MacKay. It was an incredible opportunity for the students (and us) to see Business theory come to life. The students saw first hand "just in time" production and the way a Mini is built from the nuts and bolts to the finished product ready for delivery to customers around the world. (It takes 22 hours to build a mini and all mini's are built to order. And yes, the colour red is the most popular export to China!)

 We all enjoyed it...despite a 4 hour drive back (thank you Blackwall Tunnel).

 A big thank you to Mr MacKay for driving us in the mini bus the whole way there and back safely!
