Business on the Move is a new learning initiative devised by two former Business Studies teachers Andy Page and Pat Smedley to promote supply chain awareness among students and motivate them to consider it as a career.
TT Club, a leading freight transport insurer has announced its support for Business on the Move.
Designed as a board game with varying levels of complexity, the educational tool is suitable for primary and secondary school children as well as higher education students, management trainees and corporate continuous development schemes. TT Club sees the initiative as an imaginative means to educate and inspire young people in the UK, motivating an interest in modern supply chains and the transport resources that service them. Launched recently in London, the versatile supply chain game can be used by teachers across age groups, school subjects and ability levels.
The project has received funding support from about 50 sponsors including TT Club; the support comes from businesses from across the supply chain spectrum including major retailers, transport and logistics service providers, and financial institutions.
Peregrine Storrs-Fox, TT Club’s Risk Management Director observes that the originality of the Business on the Move game and the learning environment it creates is tremendously appealing. The company is excited at the opportunity to promote greater awareness among younger people of the crucial role supply chain services play in today’s global economy, encouraging them to become part of this vibrant industry as a career.
