The Dragon's Apprentice Chocolate Challenge

posted May 9, 2011, 8:33 AM by Sophie Jewett
We are excited to be working with a number of schools in the York area to create an Enterprise Challenge for Year 10 students - The Dragon's Apprentice Chocolate Challenge. We will be working with the students over the coming term to help them create a winning chocolate product, the teams of 4 will then give us their pitch in a Dragon's Den style presentation showing off their unique chocolate products. However we're not going to be doing an Alan Sugar and firing anyone too soon, our top 2 teams will have to thrash it out head to head making and selling their creations amongst their peers. 

We know the wealth of creativity that there is amongst our younger chocolatiers, many of our best ideas have come from our workshops and parties, so we can't wait to see what they offer us. We also think it's important to get these teams working together to create their own success, which is why we're leaving the final decision up to the pupils themselves, market forces will decide the winner in a true Apprentice style challenge. 

This is just one of the chocolate workshops that Little Pretty Things can offer to work with the curriculum on a whole range of subjects, including History, Geography, English, Maths, Science, Design, Cookery and Enterprise, if you would like a workshop created for you and your school please contact us to discus your needs. 

We're looking forward to celebrating the winning team, and hopefully having a new product that we can put to use.
