This is the seventh year of The Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge, and third year in which Welwyn and Hatfield have run it. It offers year 12 students the opportunity to set up and run a business, gain organisational and job-related skills and learn about the work and beneficiaries of their designated charity.
Teams are given £100 and their challenge is to turn it into a £1000 + profit for their charity. The challenge runs between September and March and teams must make a clear business plan into how they will make their profit, they will be judged not only on what they achieve but how they have managed themselves and their colleagues.
