Year 9 Hospitality Challenge February 2017

A small group of Year 9 students have just completed a very successful two day Hospitality Challenge. They worked with students from two local schools, all members of our local Education Business Alliance, and staff from the Holiday Inn, The Belfry Hotel, Oxford Brookes University and The Swan Hotel at Minster Lovell. After a morning of ice breaker activities each team worked with one of the organisations to research their brief, met key members of staff and put together a presentation of the package they had planned for their client. The groups were tasked with planning a wedding, a prize giving event and a school prom with a range of budgets. The students managed to successfully plan their events in the limited time available, sticking to the allocated budget. They certainly made quite formidable event planners. The presentations were superb with all students participating.

The students developed their skills and confidence in working in teams with new people as well as a greater understanding of the huge range of career opportunities within the hospitality and leisure industry. The students were a credit to themselves and the schools involved. Our thanks go to all the organisations involved, in particular Oxford Brookes University who hosted the second day.

Some of the students’ comments were:-

‘Weddings cost a lot of money’!

‘It was better than I thought it would be’

‘Hotels are quite interesting places to work’.
