Dev Clever are pleased to announce that NatWest will be partnering with The Inspirational Learning Group by becoming the headline sponsor of the award winning The National Careers Challenge (TNCC). Since 2019, NatWest have enabled over 70,000 young people to develop the key skills required for their future world of work.

Supported by NatWest’s Dream Bigger programme, Year 9 and Year 10 students from across the United Kingdom will engage with two brand-new, in-person school challenges. One focused on entrepreneurialism and digital marketing, and the other on sustainability and green initiatives. The winning team from each school will go on to represent their school at the 11th Annual TNCC Finals in the Summer Term of 2023, joining the likes of previous hosts and special guests such as Jason Manford, Diversity, Nick Jenkins and Theo Paphitis.

Sean McGovern, Education Delivery Lead at NatWest, said, “NatWest Group is proud to partner with The Inspirational Learning Group for a third year running after seeing what an incredible impact our collaboration can make to the future generation of aspiring entrepreneurs. This remarkable initiative brings to life our commitment to support the future of entrepreneurship across the UK, demonstrating the impact entrepreneurial education has on the outcomes for young people in the workplace. Through both of this year’s challenges, and supported by our NatWest Dream Bigger workshops, students will learn to develop a new business idea and also tackle society’s most pressing issue, learning and collaborating to develop a unique solution to the climate crisis. It was inspiring to see the entrepreneurial talent and innovative solutions in last year’s challenge, and we can’t wait to see the new and creative ideas in 2023. Good luck to everyone participating.”

Ben Dyer, Managing Director of The Inspirational Learning Group said, “Over the last two years, we have seen students successfully engage with the NatWest challenge, and have received excellent feedback from students and teachers. Therefore, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with NatWest for the third year, as headline sponsor”.
