On Wednesday 7th July, the winning groups from Wolverhampton’s Junior Apprentice competition represented the city in the Black Country Junior Apprentice final at Walsall football club’s Bescot stadium. Competing against teams from Walsall, Dudley and Sandwell, Year 6 children from Rakegate Primary and Hill Avenue Primary had to create a charity campaign based around the theme of the World Cup, then present their ideas and marketing materials to a team of business judges.
We are delighted to announce that Hill Avenue Primary, whose ingenious campaign was based around the sale of three varieties of “World Cup Cakes”, were deservedly awarded first place. Congratulations to both Hill Avenue and to Rakegate for their efforts, creativity and presentation skills in participating in this fantastic event.
Here are the winning team from Hill Avenue:
The Junior Apprentice competition was a year-long collaboration between the City Learning Centre (www.wolverhamptonclc.co.uk) and Wolverhampton Education Business Partnership. Eighteen primary schools from around the city competed in school heats and finals at the CLC. For further information, see these previous posts on the CLC website:
