Katie Virgo Wins Excellence Award

Check Your Security Ltd in conjunction with Flegg High and Cliff Park High schools in Martham and Great Yarmouth has worked with students in the attainment of their IT diploma course.

A very proud member of a group of pupils studying for the Diploma IT accepted an award for excellence from Carl Pace, Managing Director of Check Your Security Ltd at Cliff Park High School.  Katie Virgo has been studying for the Diploma in Information Technology qualification at Flegg High School every Tuesday for the last two years.  The cohorts, made up of pupils from the two schools were set their final assessment by Carl on Skills for Innovation.  Carl used his own business skills to identify a gap in the integrated security systems market and present a business opportunity to the group.  Pupils were asked to create a business proposal which included a marketing strategy and financial projections.  Part of the assessment was to present their business proposal to Carl.

 

Katie stood out from the crowd as she presented her ideas to Carl.  Demonstrating innovation and business skills she clearly impressed her audience when explaining how she would use the opportunity to take and move forward a new company to provide integrated security systems to the small to medium enterprise.   Carl’s comment summed up her presentation.  “She knows the market and how to sell her ideas – she was excellent.”
