Be our collaborator today!

Primary School Collaboration Greenwood

Greenwood Primary has been our long-standing collaborator. Together with our Audience Team managers, teachers and students of Greenwood have worked to produce a collaborative resource for their learning journey. The students are then trained to guide the rest of their schoolmates. They build confidence and hone their presentation skills.

Should you be interested in a collaboration with us, please email our education team and your e-mail will be forwarded to the relevant manager in-charge.
