This webinar will include insights from Business in the Community’s (BITC) Curriculum Taskforce. 

About the event
The BITC Curriculum Taskforce commissioned a small-scale research project interviewing 17 teachers to explore their opinions regarding the role of business within the curriculum. The interviews explored why teachers choose to work with business, whether their expectations were met, and why sometimes things can go wrong.  The research took place before COVID-19 and school closures. However, many of the insights are just as relevant now that young people are not able to access learning in the same way as before. 

This webinar will share the key insights and provide examples from businesses who are working within the curriculum. 

Guest speakers

  • Ian Duffy, Head of UK communications and community development, bp
  • Alun Harding, Executive Headteacher, Codsall High Federation of Schools
  • Iona Cousland, CSR Manager, KPMG
  • James Sopwith, Group Strategic Account Director, adi Group

The BITC Curriculum Taskforce exists to scale up co-creation between business and schools to contribute to closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged young people and their wealthier peers.
