Discover Risk in The Seagull


From time to time, schools and colleges that host Discover Risk game sessions write about their experience of it in their newsletter.  Most recently, the Jo Richardson Community School in Dagenham included this in their newsletter 'The Seagull'.

We visited the school on 18 March (which happened to be Red Nose Day), and were approached by Sue Campbell (Deputy Head of Sixth Form) in a donkey costume!  The students were also dressed in funny attire, from Lady Gaga impersonators to Tommy Cooper wannabes.  This made for some interesting photos!

                     

Pleasingly, the Discover Risk feedback in The Seagull was extremely positive, including comments such as 'all teams were getting high marks in the latter rounds showing how their understanding of risk had increased' and 'each scenario mirrored events that have taken place in the world and produced some thought provoking discussion.'

                    

The game was supported by professionals from Aspen, a leading (re)insurer, and Lighthouse Financial, a financial advice company.

Sue Campbell commented that "having experts from the world of insurance was an excellent bonus - it gave the students a sounding board for any disagreements and also provided them with an insight to the range of opportunities within the sector. Many also took the opportunity to talk to the advisors outside of the game time and find out about their jobs and the opportunities for young people and where they might lead them. This type of first hand information is invaluable."
