Students Compete In The Bank of England Target Two Point Zero Challenge
Ashmole Academy was invited to compete in the Target Two Point Zero challenge held at the Bank of England.
Ashmole Academy was invited to compete in the Target Two Point Zero challenge held at the Bank of England against other schools. This was a chance to take on the role of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, assess economic conditions and the outlook for inflation and tell panels of judges what monetary policy they would set to achieve the Government's inflation target of 2.0%. A number of students applied to take part in the challenge by writing a application outlining the attributes they possess which would be suitable for this event.
After careful consideration Dilan Ali, Ella Bark, Shannai Joseph, Alexander Thomas and Khush Patel were selected to prepare and deliver their policies and justifications to the panel at the Bank of England.
The judges particularly liked the clarity and ease of the students and their application of current events and their impact on our domestic economy. It was a very valuable experience that allowed the students to proudly represent Ashmole Academy.
