Good planning going on for skills competitions. One in particular to draw your attention to is the Dragons Den event. The Inter-college competition for App Design will take place in two stages off site in two employer locations (APPLE).  1st stage will involve finalists spending the day at Apple’s store at Lakeside receiving tips, advice, guidance as to how they can improve their presentation of the App.  This will be workshop based working with the ‘genius team’.  2nd stage of final will take place at Apple’s flagship Regent Street store in central London where learners will present concepts to corporate staff.  

We will be looking to make good PR from this and a case study of the competition.

Planned competition dates are:

1) Dragon’s Den – 9th and 28th May    (learner profile – 16-18yr olds, MLD/EBD, E2-L1, 15 learners)

2)The Essex Bake Off – Wednesday 7th May  (learner profile 16-18yr olds, MLD, E2-L1, 15 learners)
