Aspirational students at Doncaster College

Doncaster College’s Academy of Commercial Enterprise hosted its own version of The Dragons’ Den and MasterChef as part of Aspirations Week.

For the third year running, students from all programme areas of the Academy have been involved in a variety of activities designed to raise their aspirations and motivate them to consider the next step in their career or in their education. At the popular Dragons’ Den judges listened to innovative ideas pitched by five groups of students from each of the Academy’s teaching sections.

After much deliberation it was decided that the Floristry students pitch would ultimately take the splendid glass trophy.

To round off the week a MasterChef competition was held in the college’s spacious kitchens and judged in the Waterfront restaurant before an audience of students.

Principal Gill Parkes said: “It has been hugely successful in opening students’ eyes to a broad variety of opportunities in their vocational areas and has been very motivating for both staff and students as so much fun was had along the way.”
