Pitch Perfect
The students started their day by meeting volunteers and learning about their hosts before touring the premises to get a better picture of what working there is like. Then they worked in teams to understand how banks can support businesses with their finances and started their challenge for the day. Their challenge was to secure a loan for a new business venture of their devising before running the initial set up of the business. The teams really had to demonstrate their Leadership and Presenting skills throughout the challenge, but especially at the end of the day when they presented their achievements back to a panel of volunteers.

(To a member of KPMG staff) Make sure you are still here when I am 16 because I want to be friends when I work here!
Student
It was a really good day, I wish more children could come on trips like this to learn about the skills and see a real business. All the children should have no ceiling to their aspirations!
Teacher
I've really enjoyed the day, I wish I had done this in Year 5. I have been so impressed with what the children have done, they were amazing. I would thoroughly recommend it for other people who want to volunteer!
