College reach consecutive Mosaic Enterprise Regional Finals
Team Digital Fiire – Morgan & Clyde (Year 9), Lennon, Josh & Patrick (Year 10).
On Friday 23rd March five of the College’s students competed at the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge Yorkshire Regional Finals 2018. This took part at the prestigious KPMG Offices in Leeds City Centre.
Team Digital Fiire have taken part in the biggest Mosaic Challenge Competition ever, with over 3000 students participating nationwide (the equivalent of 160 teams). Therefore, for this team students to reach a regional final was a huge achievement.
As quoted by the Compere (Nizam Uddin – Head of Mosaic Communications) “This team demonstrated their business acumen by recording a very good net profit in the business simulation game from round one. They have also demonstrated understanding of ethical business principles by completing an ethical business assessment and scoring well on that”.
On the day Team Digital Fiire had to produce and present a 3 minute pitch on a social enterprise idea that they believed would benefit the College and its local community.
Students were judged on:
- Overall quality of the pitch
- Creativity of idea
- Feasibility of idea, underpinned by sound understanding of business concepts
Working together all five students completed this target creating their own presentation based on a mobile app that could be used as a communicate service between parents, students, the College and in the future local employers or community organisations.
Head of Judges (Bradley Keast – KPMG) complimented the College students on their presentation and “clear business plan”.
Special thanks go to Rachel Mullen – Group Mentor (Unilever) and Michael Harvey (Business in the Community Manager) for all of their support and advice throughout the whole competition.
I wish to both thank and congratulate the students on their work and effort for this competition.
