The Apprentice star, Adam Corbally, has brought the television series to life, after hosting an Enterprise Day at Bolton College for 100 Year 10 and 11 pupils from Rivington and Blackrod High School.

The day, which was organised by Bolton College's schools liaison team, aimed to teach 14 to 16-year-olds how to develop their entrepreneurial skills. After Adam regaled stories of his experience to the captivated students, sharing his knowledge and expertise about enterprise, the pupils broke into small teams to put their new skills into practice.

Each team developed a business idea, which they then pitched to a large group in a bid to be crowed the winner. The victorious pupils came up with a unique, inexpensive product that could be sold to the masses รข a rose made out of fabric that could be tailor-made with an individual scent.

Adam said: "It was fantastic to work with so many enthusiastic children who all showed a great deal of understanding and innovation when it comes to enterprise. I hope they put the knowledge and skills they've acquired from the workshop to good use. Who knows? One of those budding entrepreneurs could be the next Lord Sugar!"

Amy Rudman, Bolton College's schools liaison officer, said: "Enterprise is rapidly growing as a valued subject in both primary and secondary education. Here at Bolton College, we're proud to be able to support this opportunity for young people by providing state of the art facilities and a fun programme for school children to learn from a successful modern-day businessman."
