Students prove business acumen
STUDENTS from Llanelli’s Ysgol y Strade school will be set for success after delivering a business proposal to Principality Building Society.
As part of the Principality Savings Challenge project, Ysgol y Strade students proved their business acumen by creating and delivering a proposal for a new savings account.
Held at the iconic Principality Stadium in Cardiff, students heard from a range of industry experts in the society, before pitching their ideas to a panel of judges, including the society’s CEO Steve Hughes.
The aim of the project was to develop the students’ team work, confidence and presenting skills, which are highly valuable skills for the workplace. The students showed passion, dedication and drive when presenting, with the winning team pitching an account aimed at saving for university.
Ysgol y Strade and Principality Building Society have forged a strong link through the Business Class programme, which sees the school receive funding towards development in both financial education and sports.
