19th February 2014
On 18 February 2014 six sixth form students participated in the Business, Accounting and Skills Education (BASE) 2014 Regional Heat at Highlands College and Won!
BASE is ICAEW’s national Business, Accounting and Skills Education competition for students aged 16-19. A unique and exciting experience, students are able to engage in a challenging business game that enables them to develop key employability skills and understand what it’s like to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.
Consisting of 46 UK regional heats and one spectacular national final, students of all abilities attend their local heat to; find out more about careers in accountancy, finance and business, compete in a thought-provoking business game and network with professionals at a dedicated employer exhibition. We took one team of six students to the regional heat held at Highlands College, competing against teams from Beaulieu, De la Salle, Hautlieu and Victoria College.
They had a mentor from Deloitte who supported them during the afternoon of tasks. They worked extremely well as a team and provided an excellent presentation. We are very proud of them achieving first place in the competition.
The girls now look forward to the BASE 2014 June National Finals in Birmingham
