Tricky Trials
On arrival at their hosts, the students were introduced to volunteers who would be assisting them in their challenge on the day. They then found out more about the business by going on a tour and interviewed the volunteers to find out how they use the Essential Skills in their roles, particularly focusing on the use of Problem Solving and Presenting skills. Then, working in teams, the students started working on their different cases, either as the defence or prosecution. With the help of the volunteers, they identified the best arguments, analysed evidence and listened to witness statements as they prepared to go to trial. At the close of the day, they presented their evidence to a judge and jury made of volunteers who decided the outcome of each case.
The students have benefited enormously from today: they have gained new vocabulary, confidence, an insight into the working environment and made real progress on problem solving, listening and presenting skills.
Teacher
A very rewarding day. I think experience like this are so important for young students - they can really influence your life! The students were super engaged and impressed me with the their level of analysis and how well they responded to feedback.
Volunteer
I'm proud of how my team stayed positive even when we heard that the other team had really good arguments. We used emotive language and supported each other in the presentation.
