Let's Pitch It!

Today we welcomed Baasit Saddiqui from Gogglebox in to school to work with a group of young people on Let's Pitch It!.

Working in small groups, the students competed against other schools around the country to create an idea/concept that would potentially be used in a future television show. As part of the competition, students were asked to research their idea/concept before preparing a 2 minute pitch for show executives to look at in order to grasp an insight in to their proposed plan. With the guidance of Baasit, the students investigated key words and strategies, used by people who already work in the media, to get the best out of their ideas and then to present it in a way that would be most appealing to the panel and the public.

The top 3 teams will have their idea judged by top television executives as well as winning digital resources for their school, vouchers and a visit to London to see how Gogglebox is edited so fingers crossed!

The students had such an amazing day and gained so much from their experience with Baasit. It was also wonderful for him to meet some of the other students and staff in school, who are devout fans of the show and took every opportunity to get some selfies!

Fingers crossed for the this space!
