Dragon's Den Workshop from PWC Posted on: 21/05/2019

Dragon's Den Workshop from PWC

As part of EGA's commitment to supporting young adults with careers, students in Year 8  were given the opportunity to work with trained and skilled staff from Price Water Coopers, in a Dragon’s Den style workshop The aim of the workshop was for students to develop: • A basic understanding of business challenges • Group work skills • Presentation and pitching skills • Self-reflection skills The students had the chance to participate in a business challenge that helped them better understand factors affecting their daily lives and gain basic transferable skills for their future. Student testimonies: Sadie Boyce - Year 8 It was very interesting to learn about the world of work first hand from a well-known business and it was really fun working in a group and coming up with business ideas and practicing our pitching skills. My team won with an idea for a healthy credit card to keep a check on young people's spending on junk  food - and to reward them with gym credits when they didn't!!! Taaibah Akhtar - Year 8 On Friday, I had the chance to take part in a Dragon's Den style workshop alongside some of my peers and pupils from Holloway school. This developed our skills of systematic and smart thinking. After this, we were able to work in a way where we were encouraged to consider sustainability before making business decisions. We then had to pitch ideas about how to reduce obesity and other obesity related health conditions such as diabetes. I found the day really enjoyable and it was interesting to collaborate with others in this way. Many thanks to Ms Siddique (EGA and Holloway careers lead) for organising the day! Ms Henry
