We went back to college to take part in a fantastic event organised by Working Knowledge. SPLASH which took part at South Cheshire College, brought together 12 business experts with 140 incredible students who were eager to show how they could generate some original ideas and within a day work through a series of meetings to hone their project plans and present how they would bring their chosen product to market.
A great day and one which I would encourage others who wants to give some of their time back to our next generation of budding entrepreneurs, to take part in.
Working Knowledge are involved in preparing young people for the world of work and believe that it is too important to be left to teachers, tutors and lecturers alone. It’s also true that the business world needs a steady stream of work-ready, eager, confident, creative and ambitious new young employees to enable the economy to grow. And yet it is near impossible for those in education to keep up to date with the rapid changes in the business world from the outside and thereby prepare students correctly to be of value to employers from day one or even to start their own business.
Working Knowledge bridges the gap between education and the workplace by running events that bring young people and business leaders together to help prepare the next generation of employees and entrepreneurs.
