Friday 9th June will bring together 20 schools to Headingley stadium for a unique learning experience outside of the classroom.

There are a range of workshops to get involved in, from physical activities on the pitch to classroom based sessions.

Pinsent Masons are a full service International law firm with offices across the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The firm have won ‘Law Firm of the Year’ at Legal Week British Legal Awards and is also ranked no.1 in the FT Innovative Lawyers ‘Business of Law’ index. The Leeds based office will be back again this year to run their sponsorship workshop.
What they will be doing?
Ever wondered how sponsorship deals are made? Our workshop uses a Simpsons case study to give students first-hand experience of how to work out their team’s interests and use their creativity to negotiate a deal with other teams in a fun environment.

BUPA Workshop:
BUPA are an International healthcare group, with its origins and headquarters in the United Kingdom but now serving 32 million customers in 190 countries. They have recently worked with the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation at the start of May offering free health checks at matches, proving to be very popular for spectators and staff alike. They are set to come back numerous times throughout the season.
What will their workshop involve?
The BUPA workshop at Education Day will be focused on healthy living and nutrition, the areas covered will be food labels, calories, physical activities, fats, salts and sugars.

Clarion Workshop:
Clarion is a law firm based in Leeds working in media, healthcare, retail, built environment, manufacturing, energy, food and drink and professional services sectors.
What will their workshop involve?
The topic for the sessions will be Intellectual Property looking at how companies have to protect their designs and brands against competitors. In the workshop, children then design a product that is unique in the market.

Here at the YCF, we’re really excited about Education Day this year. It’s one of our biggest annual events, which brings together children all over Yorkshire. It’s a great way to get children to socialise with other schools and gives a new perspective on the learning environment. With so much planned for the day, there’s sure to be something for everyone. -Charlotte Jones, YCF Marketing and PR Officer.
