Former Redcar & Cleveland College Student Launches New Business

Former Redcar & Cleveland College Student Launches New Business

A former Redcar & Cleveland College student is celebrating the launch of his new business, Caught Red Handed.

Having studied a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business at the College from 2013 – 2015, Sam Green, 20 from Marton, is now putting the skills learned on his course to use at Caught Red Handed – his own company which specialises in the production of custom framed gifts.

Taking inspiration from a ‘sorry you’re leaving’ gift received by his mother, Sam used his knowledge of the marketplace to offer similar, higher quality products at a more affordable price.

Sam said: “I’ve been interested in running my own business since I was very young. Building something from scratch and watching it grow is always something that has appealed to me, and in this case I saw an opportunity to improve upon an existing product.

“I knew that the market was there and so far things are going really well. I’m determined to make it a success and would really like to thank Redcar & Cleveland College for providing me with the skills needed to succeed.

“My business course provided me with a better idea of what it would take to succeed – especially when it comes to finance and marketing – and the staff made me believe that running my own business was actually possible.”

In addition to bespoke gifts for individuals, Caught Red Handed also offers corporate gifts for business and charities.

Mandy Morris, Vice Principal for Curriculum at Redcar & Cleveland College, said: “We’re thrilled to see that Sam has gone on to launch his own business. He was an extremely passionate student who was always destined for success. I wish him the best of luck and look forward to seeing Caught Red Handed continue to grow.”
