Junior Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge 2019/20
This year’s Junior Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge launched on 4th November 2019 in 6 schools across Broxbourne and East Herts. This is a six-week challenge working with local primary school teams to offer a springboard into the world of business for students in years 5 and 6. Teams are tasked with investing £50 into their very own business aiming to turn the investment into as much profit as possible for their charity partners.
Some of the schools taking part include Churchfield CE Academy, Hertford St Andrew CE Primary School, Hillmead Primary School, Holy Trinity CE Primary School, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and Wormley CE Primary School.
A number of local charity/community organisations have been partnered with the schools including Breathe Easy, Broxbourne Foodbank, CHEXS and Community Skills Hub – Waltham Cross.
The November launch was the first round of three, with the next one launching on 6th January 2020! To register your interest to participate in Round 3 set to launch on 24th February 2020 please email Penny.

The Junior Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge, launched by CVSBEH in 2014, is a spin-off of the Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge created for Year 12 students by St Albans CVS. The Junior Challenge runs over six weeks in local primary schools giving students in years 5 and 6 an opportunity to experience the business world. Each team is given an initial investment of £50 to make into as much money as possible for a range of local charities and voluntary organisations, all of whom are actively involved with their teams.
If you would like further information or to be involved in the next round please email Penny or call 0300 123 1034.
