Run by TARGETjobs Events and in partnership with Siemens, the TARGETjobs National Schools' Challenge gives your pupils the chance to benchmark themselves in a series of aptitude and ability tests in our online competition, against thousands of students from schools and colleges within your region and across the UK on our LIVE leaderboards.
Who can take part?
Anyone aged 15 – 19yrs studying all subjects.
What's the prize?
1st place: £500 for the winner and £1000 for the school
2nd place: £250 for the winner and £500 for the school
3rd place: £100 for the winner and £250 for the school
How can your school take part?
Each pupil needs to go to the website, enter their details and take the online test. Be warned, once the test has been entered they cannot go back to it or re-enter.
Each of the 10 regions across the UK are being sponsored by some great employers, and your region, London and Home Counties, is sponsored by Network Rail. The 10 students with the highest scores in each region will be invited to take part in the Grand Final event in London on 7 March 2014. The finalists will need to organise their own travel.
At the grand final students will meet representatives from the sponsoring companies and gain tips on how to succeed in their future careers. They will also take part in assessment exercises similar to those used by employers in real life (a fantastic chance to improve their skills for future career opportunities!) and be in with a chance of winning cash prizes.
