WHEN it comes to combining creativity with business acumen, students from Sir John Cass's Foundation and Red Coat School have proven they've got what it takes.
Around 100 of the school's Year 10 pupils took part in a one-day workshop to come up with the design for a charity T-shirt complete with a budget and a plan to market and sell it.
Adding their experience to the mix were volunteers from Barclays and textile design students from the University of East London.
The project formed part of the Passport to Employability programme, which gives young people in the borough the chance to earn units that contribute towards a qualification.
