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.

Student, Year 6
The children had such unique ideas and clearly spent a lot of time and attention on building their brand. It's been a fantastic day and I'm so pleased our company is involved in this programme.
Volunteer, UBS
I'm proud of how everyone compromised, using Leadership, Teamwork and Staying Positive to eventually agree on just one idea.
