DDF part funded “The sweet challenge” for Salvatorian Year 10 and 11 pupils. Supported by a team of volunteers, pupils were set into teams of 4/5 and had to establish a business team (CEO, finance, marketing, production) and design a product, identify a target market, cost it, package it, and prepare a pitch – all in the space of 4 hours!
The results were outstanding with the energy and creativity testament to the enthusiasm of the pupils. One teacher advised the participants were “buzzing” for days afterwards. The winning team even tried to directly sell their product to the volunteers! Creativity, team work, leadership, finance and business skills all encompassed in this one session.
