Nisa supports Lincolnshire students with unique gift
Business students in Lincolnshire are discovering a new, innovative platform for learning thanks to Nisa Retail, who really are making a difference locally by donating a unique gift to a number of colleges in the local area.
To support local students with their studies in an enjoyable and unique way, Nisa has presented several North Lincolnshire colleges with a fun and versatile educational game named Business on the Move: Global Edition. Designed to excite and inspire players about business and global supply chains, it features Nisa on the board itself as a sponsor alongside other household names including Nestle, Waitrose, DHL and Marks & Spencer.
The global supply chain game, which is matched to the national curriculum, requires players to run a logistics business moving different products from one side of the world to the other by land, air and sea as quickly, profitably and environmentally responsible as they can.
Players must make the same decisions businesses make every day- “How do I deliver? Will I make a profit? How should I grow? How can I cut my carbon footprint?”- which connects learners to the real world, helping students to expand their minds beyond the walls of a classroom.
John Leggott College in Scunthorpe was one of the colleges to receive copies of the game. Their head of Business Studies, David Gillman, said: “May to June can be a very stressful time for students as they face life-altering exams. As exam period rapidly approaches, Nisa donating these games creates an opportunity for local students to take a break from reading books and do something enjoyable whilst simultaneously developing their subject skills and future employability.”
Head of logistics at Nisa, Kerinne Oliver, said: “It’s great to support Business on the Move and in doing so hopefully inspire young people in northern Lincolnshire about their future career opportunities and help to develop their employability.”
The games were donated as a set of four to allow for a classroom of up to 30 students to simultaneously participate. Nisa have also donated copies of the game to other local educational establishments in the Lincolnshire area.
