Curriculum Links & Schools

 

The business project, which forms the core of the initiative, is cross curricular and incorporates the curriculum subjects listed below. Life Skills are an important component of the project based learning and pupils experience multi sensory real life situations. This empowers the children to help themselves by helping other children through innovation and initiative.

The children are given the autonomy to grow and develop strengths and work on weaknesses; the space to achieve which, in turn, releases creativity and ingenuity; the chance to develop socially by interaction with other pupils and adults, become more aware of social issues and problems facing young people locally and internationally; learn about different cultures, people and languages;become kinder and more caring and which will hopefully lead to a volunteer culture and their growth into more confident young people
