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.

I was amazed by the children's creativity skills, they came up with some great business ideas in such a short space of time!
Brewin Dolphin Volunteer
I have really enjoyed being here, I even liked different schools being here as I was able to see what their business ideas were too. I liked presenting best as I can try out new ways of getting my ideas across.
