Learners Get Fired Up For Dragons Den

During last weeks Curriculum Enrichment day, Year 8 and 9 learners worked on a mini enterprise project. They worked in house teams to plan a Valentine’s Day prom for their year group.  Teams were given a budget of £1000 and asked to nominate a project manager, a finance officer, a catering expert, an entertainments officer and a publicity and marketing director.
The events management challenge was to organise a prom for 200 people, which involved promoting the event, arranging entertainment for the evening, preparing a suitable menu, organising the venue and managing their budget effectively – the teams also had to prepare a Dragon’s Den style pitch to sell their concept to the judges.
Learners’ oracy, numeracy and working with others skills were truly put to the test; nonetheless, the quality of the proposals was fantastic and learners showed outstanding team spirit.
Well done to everyone involved!
