Commerce in the Classroom
This pilot project aims to help young people understand the relevance and possibilities of a career in commerce and international trade. Future First will establish a sustainable network of volunteers from various trade organisations and networks who work in this field to provide employer encounters and learning opportunities in Future First member schools.
Through this programme, students will gain a greater understanding of what commercial education means and involves, and be exposed to a range of employment and career opportunities, dispelling misconceptions or stereotypes about who can succeed.
Students will be helped to develop their transferable employability skills; to increase their understanding of international trade; to understand the range of employment and career opportunities available within international trade; and, to increase their confidence in their own ability to succeed.
