Commerce in the Classroom

By Natalie Marshall.

Future First has delivered a pilot project connecting individuals working in international trade and commerce to young people in secondary schools and colleges across the South East and East of England. The pilot was funded by CET.

The evaluation findings showed that by the end of the project, students who took part in the pilot were more able to identify what international trade was, were more aware of the variety of different roles available across the sector and more able to identify the skills required for specific jobs. Students also developed negotiation, teamwork and problem-solving skills.
