As part of their Entrepreneurship studies three students, from the FdSc Animal Science course pitched competing business proposals to five Dragon's Den-style judges. The panel consisted of NatWest business banking specialists, Trevor Parsons, Colin Fines and Dana Smith , College Principal Des Lambert and Deputy Principal David Stokes and they awarded Robyn Rayson the Entrepreneur Award. All proposals were commended for innovation, sustainability and quality. The presentations were so impressive NatWest awarded free mentoring and business support to all contestants.
