BASE Competition 2016



On 17th November 2016 six of our business/economics students from Year 12 and Year 13 attended the BASE competition at the Chartered Accountants' Hall in Moorgate, London. BASE is ICAEW's National Business and Accounting competition for students in school or college aged 16-19. This was a unique and exciting experience for our students who were able to engage in a business challenge under pressure and present a case to a board of directors. Our students were able to take on the role of ICAEW Chartered Accountants and were presented with an information pack outlining a business scenario and a set of challenges. The team was expected to analyse the unseen information and develop innovative recommendations to the business and a panel of directors. The team were supported by a Chartered Accountant mentor, who commended the students on their approach and efforts. Throughout the day the students were observed on how well they worked as a team, how effectively they communicated and how they managed their time under tight deadlines. Trinity was selected out of a large number of schools as one of the top four presentations. All the students were able to develop key employability skills throughout the day and further understand what it's like to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant. It was a perfect opportunity for our six students to learn more about careers in accountancy while competing for prestigious prizes against teams from across the UK. Students were able to make connections with potential future employers and test their business acumen throughout the day.
