Over 50 Year 12 Central Foundation students have attended a range of bespoke lectures at the world-renowned London Business School, getting a mini-MBA experience from leading professors on topics ranging from Corporate Social Responsibility and finance to decision-making and creativity.
This enrichment programme on Wednesdays is another opportunity for students to widen and deepen their understanding of topics not always taught in the formal curriculum. Students were introduced to a style of lectures akin to the Harvard Case Method which has given them the confidence to contribute and engage in thought-provoking sessions.
There has already been a noticeable difference demonstrated by students in their lessons at school. They are now able to bring their wider knowledge of topics discussed, to a variety of different areas of academic debate and discourse in class.
Tina Clark, one of the organisers of the programme, regularly comments on the high-quality engagement and commitment demonstrated by the students at Central Foundation. Their individual performance in each lecture is being tracked and assessed, with many students on course to achieving a place on the Honour Roll; where the winners will get a monetary prize, personalised letter from the Dean and invitation to the celebratory event at the end of the programme.
