Junior Dragons Den Challenge

17th May 2017 – Wick
18th May 2017 – Thurso

As part of our ongoing work with primary schools across North Highland, the DYW team partnered with NHC to deliver a Junior Dragons’ Den Challenge for primary 7 pupils – THE TOTALLY AWESOME SCHOOLBAG.

Using a variety of skills such as communication, teamwork, budgeting, creativity, marketing the teams had to produce this school bag and deliver a presentation to our Dragons’ Den Judges made up of local business people and NHC students. A total of 17 teams participated. It was fantastic to see the pupils so enthused about this challenge and gain invaluable skills to help them progress their education and move into the world of work.

Developing Career and Employability Skills

Helping young people across the region move on from education into the world of work with the skills and attitudes to succeed.

DYW in conjunction with Tree of Knowledge, a high-profile, motivational training company, delivered a workshop to S6 pupils from across the six North Highland secondary schools.

The workshop was designed to help the pupils identify their own personal qualities, enterprise skills and develop both their presentation and organisational skills. The pupils then confidently delivered these employability workshops to hundreds of S1 pupils over North Highland Region.
