Pinsent Masons and PriceWaterHouseCoopers Education Day
The YCF brings Law and Accountancy to the primary schools of Yorkshire
Law firm Pinsent Masons along with chartered accountants PriceWaterhouseCoopers have created a fantastic partnership with the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, running a unique education day for primary schools in Yorkshire.
Working with children in year 6, this education day focusses on cricket related law and accountancy topics. The morning includes workshop based learning environments including an interactive session involving a mock negotiation based around the cricketing/sponsorship scenario followed by 60 minutes cricket coaching with Pro Coach. After lunch, the class are taken on a behind the scenes tour of the stadium.
Demand amongst the schools to attend this programme is high, introducing the children to prospective careers that could shape future targets and interests during the transition to high school.
