Cross-school Challenges


Three exciting cross-school challenges provide milestones throughout the ten-month process to keep teams motivated and on track: 

  1. The Film Challenge requires pupils to work as a team to communicate why the issue they have chosen matters. They must do it in under two minutes in a single take. 


  2. The Pitch Challenge requires them to prepare a project plan and pitch to a panel of judges made up of senior representatives drawn from local companies and government in a bid to win funding. 


  3. The Boardroom Challenge takes places after teams have finished their projects. It requires teams to present the difference they have made and their coaches to evidence the competencies they have developed. To help prepare students for this challenge, reflection is embedded in the programme.
