How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine

Our Time to Shine programme allows students to take part in a collaborative project where they will develop the concept and business plan for a new start-up company. As part of this project students will give a sales pitch presentation about their start-up company and product to a panel of judges who will offer valuable feedback and guidance. By working together students will develop vital key skills needed in business, such as negotiating strategies, interpersonal communication, teamwork, and presentation skills. Time to Shine is a great opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and skills to something that they have created and developed as a team.

What You’ll Take Away

Our Time to Shine projects also require students to develop skills beyond communication and subject knowledge. By conducting their own investigations for each research task, students will develop their analytical and critical thinking skills, and also develop their collaboration and presentation skills.
