Stu­dents prove busi­ness acu­men

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

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.
