Two students from the Vikings Learning Centre have won the Enterprise Challenge set by Andrew Edwards, founder of 2017 Vikings first team sponsors MadAbout Media, and have been given £250 to kickstart their idea.
We are proud to say that one of these two winning students is our ex-pupil Anna Parsons, and The Prescot School would like to congratulate Anna on her success.
The objective of the Vikings Learning Centre, through its partnership with Riverside College and the Rank Foundation, is to offer an alternate, inspiring route for local young people to achieve qualifications, and access support to progress onto further education, employment or enterprise opportunities. Since its inception in September 2015, over 70 people have accessed provision which is based from the Halton Stadium.
The students were tasked with coming up with an idea that can generate money during their time in the Vikings Learning Centre in order to donate their profits to Community Integrated Care and the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation.
