Dragon fired up by college’s business pair

Have your say

TWO students at Sheffield College have been recognised for their entrepreneurial talents.

Joseph Panasiuk and Liban Mohamed were singled out for their skills by Peter Jones, of TV’s Dragon’s Den fame.

The pair were among the highest achievers of 145 graduates from the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, a nationwide network of colleges to train young people in business know-how.

Those taking part in a year-long course study the fundamentals of business in a BTEC Diploma Level 2 and 3 in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, working on real-life challenges and gained hands-on experience running businesses alongside their studies.

Mr Jones said they were part of a new generation “our country desperately needs to get itself back on its feet”.
