Would you like to help design a fun, live, and interactive virtual classroom? All students welcome!

Practical Business Improvements Ltd.

Available Between

PBI has been working remotely since the pandemic hit last year, because of this, we know how important it is to feel like you are not alone whilst working from home. We have recently designed a virtual office space where our staff signs into work on a daily basis - just as they would in the real world! We have noticed a massive improvement within our team with our mental wellbeing, how we work, and the way that we communicate with each other, so we now want to take our idea to the next level and develop a virtual classroom! This is where you, the students come in. You will be at the forefront of remote working collaboration and will be trained on how to use continuous improvement techniques, project management tools, and communication tools, all whilst using online collaboration platforms such as The Grapevine and MURAL. We will be designing and building a virtual classroom with your help and by using your knowledge of remote learning to help guide us to be able to address the challenges that were experienced during the lockdown. This will also be used within business environments and will expose you to roles within virtual development, continuous improvements, and business development.

Watch the video below for a quick insight into our virtual office, how it works, and why we use it!
