JA Cyprus has launched the second year of its signature ‘Company Programme’ to high schools across the island.
Through the Company Programme, students learn how to take a business idea from concept to reality by forming a real enterprise and discovering firsthand how a company functions.
Last school year, 25 student companies proudly presented their products and services during the first Company of the Year Competition. In total, 199 students successfully completed and graduated from the programme and the winning team, Stay Safe Security Solutions, a 15-member student team from Paralimni, represented Cyprus in the European Competition that was held in Estonia between 22-25 July, 2014.

The programme this year has kicked off with the teachers training that was held on the 8th of October and then followed by the business mentors’ training held on the 29th of October, 2014. There are currently 21 high schools that have registered in Cyprus to participate in the programme for the year 2014-2015.
In this Programme upper secondary schools (Lycea, Private schools and Vocational Schools) from across the country are called to participate by naming the teachers that wish to participate in the programme.
