8th International School Business Fair, 21st & 22nd February 2017
School businesses are attractive learning environments and workshops
By working in a school business, pupils have the opportunity to work in team, test out economic theories, experience the day-to-day runnings required for a company and can use knowledge gained in lessons in a practical environment. Pupils quickly discover more about their own abilities and how they can be useful in different circumstances and the chance to experience how businesses work by completing tasks in a variety of different areas provides a positive first step to the world of work. Not only does the experience provide a gateway for a successful start to a potential career, but it also fits nicely alongside topics that regularly feature on the school curriculum. The positives for pupils wanting to run or take part in their own school business are many.
