BET Launches ‘Inspire’ Competition for Year 10 – Inspiring Young Minds

01/21/2019

Bohunt Education Trust launched a cross-academy competition, designed specifically for our Year 10s from all schools. The event, an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)-style team competition, consists of teams of four or five students who will compete against each other. Each team will test each other’s cultural and social knowledge, aiming to demonstrate an understanding of the chosen topic, “What has been the most influential change in human history during the last two hundred years?’

Teams from BET gathered at Bohunt Sixth Form on Wednesday evening to meet and discuss the competition in more detail. It was a great opportunity for all the students to meet their cohorts from the other schools, something that the Trust will aim to develop more over the coming months this academic year.

Each team will work with a newly qualified teacher (NQT) who will mentor the students and co-ordinate their answers. The teams will have to present their answers at an exciting presentation evening in the Summer Term, where the winners will be announced – something that’s certain to fill the Sixth Form building for the evening!

Neil Strowger, CEO, said, “By inspiring young minds across our Trust, we develop the thinkers of tomorrow. Events such as Inspire demonstrate that collectively we can encourage all our students to thrive in the real world after school.”
