de Stafford School proudly presents Business Day 2019! This event will take place on Tuesday 9 July. During this enjoyable and educational day, all Year 10 students will take part in a product design and marketing task. They will work in teams on creating a winning design and then go head to head with all the other teams in a "Dragons Den" style pitch. The most organised, productive and creative team will win the day and some prizes. Our students’ performance on this day will be judged by approximately 10 business leaders who will appraise their ability to work as part of a team during the day and will rate their presentation skills at the end.
In addition to this, there is a chance for each student to meet with one of the business leaders and to have a practice interview. Each student will be working on their CV over the coming weeks and they will present it to the business leader, who will then talk over their aims and their hopes for employment and further education. The students will put a lot of work into their CVs, but may benefit from another adult proofreading it or giving some ideas of other activities that they have participated in that could be included that the students may have forgotten about or did not deem relevant.
This is a day to look great! The dress code for this day is "Business Smart". However, if they do not have an item of clothing listed below, then full school uniform would be more than appropriate.
Girls - Smart trousers or skirt with white school blouse and an optional jacket. Black or skin colour tights. Black school shoes. Make up will be allowed on this day, but again, please ensure that it is appropriate for working in a professional environment!
Boys – A smart shirt with a tie, black school trousers and black school shoes.
This always proves to be a great day and I know that this year’s bunch of budding entrepreneurs will represent themselves very well.
