Pupils earn praise from business leaders

Our students have earned positive praise from London business leaders in the Community-Apprentice Pitching Challenge.

As previously reported, we have two teams entering the Community-Apprentice competition this year which is running in 12 schools across the city.  Loosely based on the TV show The Apprentice, young people, working in teams, compete to develop, and crucially demonstrate, their skills whilst managing their own projects.  But in this case, they compete not to see who can make the most money, but who can make the biggest positive impact on their community.

Turning ideas into action

Over the past few weeks the teams have been coming up with ideas and developing them into a practical plan.  They have set a clear goal, identified relevant activities, allocated responsibilities, set deadlines, identified resources and produced a budget.

Team Hope for Homelessness are planning to tackle homelessness by organising the collection and distribution of key survival resources to homeless people across the borough. They have already secured £300 for their idea from O2 think big.

Pitch perfect

On 7th December 2016 our teams pitched their ideas to local business leaders to get funding to help implement their plans as well as feedback to help them improve their impact.

The event was held in the intimidating surroundings of White & Case, a law firm in the city, located near the Bank of England.  Seven teams from schools from across the city pitched in front of each other as well as the panel giving students the opportunity to watch each other to help them learn what makes a successful pitch.

BBC journalist Christopher Pitt, who was on the panel said “All of the pitches were of a high standard and the students all seemed extremely passionate about their projects.”

Student, Nawal Sheylila said that the Business Mentor session ahead of the event “really helped our team’s confidence going into the pitch and proved that practise makes perfect!”

Any year 12 students interested in joining the team to tackle homelessness or improve sex education, and a personal reference for your UCAS/ job applications, please either get in touch with Ms. Mamoona Ahmed, email prince@envision.org.uk, or drop into one of the sessions every Wednesday between 1.20-2.30pm- there’ll be snacks/pizza provided!
