30 Nov Discover Risk Workshop – CII
Jo Richardson Sixth Form had the opportunity to take part in a Game of Risk produced by the Chartered Institute of Insurers. The Year 12 Sixth Formers made the most of their opportunity.
The students were split into teams, over three sessions, and had to decide on the risk and impact of certain events within real life scenarios. Each scenario mirrored events that have taken place in the real world and produced some thought provoking discussion.
Students began to realise that in the world of insurance all areas have to be thought of and covered!! Would anyone have thought about the possibility of a film crew breaking both 3D cameras whilst filming to a tight 12 week schedule – what impact might that have? Who could imagine a popstar slapping an interviewer around the face – how would that affect their image, reputation and record sales? A vegan superstar snapped by the paparazzi eating a burger?
George from CII outlined the variety of options for students in the world of insurance and got some of them to ponder this as a career path. He also provided insight as to how some of the scenarios actually had a bigger impact on events than students first assumed.
It was a good exercise in reading the clues carefully and picking out the key words that signposted the likeliness and impact.
All session winners and several other teams scored over 100 points. All teams were getting high marks in the latter rounds, (apart from a couple of slips), showing their understanding of Risk had increased. The cheers when a team got a complete board correct nearly had Mrs Wren coming out of her office!
Many thanks to the CII, for providing the resources for a fun learning activity.
