Dragon's Apprentice Challenge

The Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge is an innovative annual business challenge for primary and secondary school pupils across the district.

Schools are invited to enter teams into the challenge. Each team is then paired up with a local charity, as well as a mentor from the business community (their ‘Dragon’) to support them in turning £100 seed money into as much capital as they can during the course of the challenge.

The profit made by each team is then presented to their charities at an award ceremony at the end of the challenge.

The Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge is a fun way for young people to gain skills in enterprise, whilst at the same time allowing local business to engage with the community in a worthwhile cause.
