Lower VI and the Base Challenge

A national competition.

Mrs MacLennan, Director of Priory 6 here tells us of the work conducted by Lower VI this week:

‘The Lower VI students have been taking part in the BASE Challenge organised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).  They have been working in groups of three to four to solve online problems and have put together presentations in response to case studies they have researched.  The girls have really enjoyed the opportunity to pool their skills together to tackle these real-life, industry-based problems.  Good luck to all the entries!

   

BASE is the ICAEW’s national business and accounting competition for 16-17 year olds across the UK. This is an exciting experience where students take part in team challenges; giving them an understanding of what it’s like to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant whilst developing their key employability skills.’
