Dragons' Den challenge

Summer 2021 programme - Dragons' Den

Developed for students in Years 7-9 in England and Wales, Years 8-10 in Northern Ireland and S1-3 in Scotland, our summer Dragons’ Den programme consists of nine sessions intended to be delivered over the summer term. The learning materials are designed to be used by teachers in the classroom and offer an opportunity for students to develop their entrepreneurial skills. 

Over the course of the programme, students will be presented with a problem and encouraged to develop ideas to solve it, before presenting their pitch to their teacher and classmates. Each session includes a bite size (5-10 minute) pre-recorded video, delivered by PwC staff, along with tasks to be completed in the classroom. The videos can be viewed ‘on demand’, giving you the flexibility to use the materials in a way that best suits you and your students. 

All the materials that you need to deliver this programme are provided below, including a detailed Teacher Handbook.

For schools in England, this programme will support you in meeting seven out of eight Gatsby Benchmarks.

Previous programmes

The learning materials from our previous autumn 2020 and spring 2021 programmes are also still available online should you wish to run these sessions with your students too.
