Business Box


Business Box draws on the experience of our team of freelance tutors who operate their own small businesses. Their insight into business operation is a great boost to learner engagement as our tutors 'practice what they preach'. It’s this direct experience that improves learner career awareness and aspirations. Business Box is about self-development, raising employability, and entrepreneurship. It’s a hugely popular course, as more students who are at risk of exclusion or permanently excluded still understand the need to acquire essential skills to succeed in their chosen career path.
