Requirements from school:
Following confirmation of booking, the school should ensure that adequate numbers of staff are present during the workshop, and that the agreed number of students take part.
Cost of programme:
Students will act as a brand new 'social enterprise' company who want to gain funding from Dell for a new and exciting tech product! During the workshop, students will be encouraged to develop their knowledge of social issues in their community and the way that technology can be used for the greater good. The programme will also aim to raise students’ aspirations, develop key transferable skills such as creativity and innovation which can be used in the world of work.
The workshop is two hours long and you can choose the timings for the workshop to run which suit your students' timetables. A Talent Foundry facilitator will deliver the session in school with potential for Dell volunteer virtual support.
