Resource centre

The resource centre contains case studies covering the four pillars of Business Class, plus interventions looking at whole school approaches and cluster collaboration. Many case studies are supported by useful and easy to use resources and templates.

These demonstrate the impressive impacts and achievements of schools and businesses who have partnered to support and inspire pupils in challenging circumstances.  We hope they will inspire existing partnerships with new ideas and activities.

If you are considering joining Business Class, we hope that they will encourage you to develop a partnership with your local school that is rooted in their needs and underpinned by our strategic support and collaborative action. Please contact us if you would like any further information.
