A GROUP of S2 Business pupils attended a 'Female Entrepreneurial Development Academy course' at the RBS HQ at Gogarburn, in Edinburgh.

About 60 pupils from across schools near Edinburgh, attended a very professional day of workshops and learning.

Pupils were helped with skills on how to develop a Growth Mindset, how to discover and develop a Business Idea from an existing problem, then how to solve the problem with their Business Idea, how to test the Business Idea and finally, how to activate the Idea into a real product or service.

Said one of the teachers involved: "The pupils also received excellent guidance on how to structure and prepare a 1 minute 'Business Pitch' and were given an insight into the RBS Graduate Apprenticeship scheme from existing young professionals.

"All in all a very worthwhile and productive day".

Beath High School would like to thank RBS for the amount of work they put into making the day such a great learning experience.
