9th International School Business Fair

School businesses promote learning in a vocational environment

Setting up a school-based company provides pupils with a great opportunity to put what they've learnt in an academic environment into a practical situation. Additionally valuable skills such as economic theory, business practice and teamwork are taken on board.
Pupils soon learn more about their strengths and how best to use them and the opportunity to discover how companies work and how different roles join together to make profit is invaluable.
The genuine enjoyment the pupils get out of running a company also goes hand in hand with the process of becoming au fait with skills essential for the working world. There are many reasons for the increasing interest in school businesses.
