This academic year Westminster Business School has continued to offer work experience to two sixth form students from Davenant Foundation School in Loughton. The students, Afia Kufuor and Desiree Joseph both study A level Economics and have been curating articles and videos for TRIBE  over the past two years. Afia has also helped with marketing of TRIBE amongst potential Westminster students at the Undergraduate Open Day. TRIBE is an online learning and teaching resource in business and economics, funded by the Commercial Education Trust  and Westminster Business School. The resource is a one-stop shop for news articles and media on A Level business and economic topics such as the global economy, competitive markets, and international business.

TRIBE currently has over 1,000 subscribers. This week Karen Kufuor caught up with Desiree and Afia and asked them about their work experience with TRIBE. “ I am really enjoying working on TRIBE,” says Desiree, “ It’s made it much easier to keep up to date with economic news. I think it’s a really good resource as its easy to use and has some interesting articles that are relevant to my course.” Afia also expressed her enthusiasm about the experience “ I have really appreciated getting work experience on TRIBE. “ she says, “It’s been good to relate what’s happening in the news to what we do in class. …The day I enjoyed the most was the Undergraduate Open day, where I signed up more than 80 students to TRIBE. It was a really rewarding day because I had never done any sort of marketing before, but as I signed up more and more people, I got more confident. “ To sign up to TRIBE newsletters, please click here
