“Overall, the course is very different to school. You get more independence and that means a lot.”
John Nice, from Otley College, said: “Our teaching was cited as being good in our recent OfSted report and I believe this is partly down to the fact that we often look for innovative ways of engaging with our students.
“This Dragons' Den project was a perfect example of us doing just that.”
