Returning for a second visit to saltash.net community school on Tuesday 5th March, Apprentice 2010 finalist, Claire Young, led another inspiring workshop for 40 Year 9 and 10 female students. The students were able to spend the day with Claire, listening to her life story and finding out more about what has made her a very successful entrepreneur.

Working in groups, the students had to prepare a presentation for a panel of judges in the afternoon – Mrs Boulton, Work Related Learning Coordinator, and Assistant Headteachers, Miss Littledyke and Mr Oldfield. Focusing on the theme of a new sports accessory, the students ‘pitched’ their ideas confidently after a day’s input from Claire. The winning team named ‘Team2Sport’, was deemed to be well presented, thought provoking and credible with their idea of ‘waterproof earphones’.
