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.

Teamwork and creativity in their business designs
Today I felt like a very important person as I was allowed into this amazing building. It looks so futuristic with all this technology.
Student, Year 5
A really inspiring experience. It's been wonderful to see how the children have responded to opportunities to be challenged, to work in new ways, to work outside their comfort zone and to communicate with business professionals.
Teacher, Calverton Primary
I've been amazed by how creative and commercial the children's ideas have been today. They have developed businesses which could be very successful in the future and in a short space of time too!
