This article reports that the Institute of Logistics and Transport is working with the businessdynamics company on a project sponsored by the Department for Education and Skills of Great Britain, which is intended to encourage closer cooperation between independent and state schools. The company has identified the schools to take part in the program and courses have already taken place in Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and the Birmingham area. The course material has been built around a central theme designed to tie in with the institute's National Schools Competition. The theme of the initiative is transport and its environmental impact. The students worked in small groups made up of pupils from each school. They were asked to assume the role of concert promoter and to give a five-minute presentation on how they would go about staging a 'party in the park,' paying particular attention to transport and environmental issues. The winning group at each school was presented with prizes donated by the institute. It is hoped that the students who participated will be encouraged to enter the institute's national schools competition and will consider taking up a career in logistics and transport management.
