The Faculty of Classics at Cambridge are hugely excited to launch our new competition this year! We want you to get creative with the Classics and come up with your own myth. The competition is open to school years 3-8 (ages 7-13). These year groups will be split into two categories to be judged separately: 3-5 and then 6-8.
I work at HM Treasury, where my job is to advise the Chancellor of the Exchequer and other Treasury Ministers on the best way to invest the billions that the Government spends on infrastructure in order to support productivity and economic growth. My degree in Classics (I was at Emmanuel College from 2010 to 2013) was excellent preparation for the world of work. It taught me to think critically, and structure arguments in a clear and concise way that allows Ministers to understand complex policy issues.
