Throughout the pandemic, we have all learned to be adaptable. At BOP we are always looking for new ways to expand our reach, and offer our programs to schools and students across the country around the world. Whilst we service schools in 36 cities around the world, border closures have meant that throughout the pandemic, we have had to find new ways to deliver real, relevant, and relatable learning experiences to students.
One example of this, was our Business Builder programs for Methodist Ladies' College, Kew. To celebrate the end of a big year, and the return to campus for students, the MLC team were planning a range of fun and engaging learning opportunities for their students and were hoping for the BOP team to deliver a series of business builder and social enterprise workshops to show students how they could build their own businesses over the school holidays.
Unfortunately due to travel restrictions, our Brisbane-based team were unable to get down to Melbourne to work with the students face to face, but we were instead able to create all the resources for this program to allow the MLC classroom teachers to deliver the workshops on our behalf.
This saw our team working to develop and adapt the slides for the workshop, as well as teaching notes, classroom resources, and a virtual explainer video on how we like to deliver our programs. All of this was sent down to the MLC team ahead of the program for them to review deliver to the students on the day.
Over the course of the pandemic, we have loved utilising the teacher-led delivery style to upskill teachers across the country in delivering our style of programming, whilst also ensuring borders are no longer a barrier for the BOP magic!
