Jungheinrich UK has sponsored the new Global Edition of the board game Business on the Move as part of its commitment to supporting tomorrow’s workforce of logistics and supply chain professionals. 

Logistics is a compelling career choice offering diverse opportunities, and taking this message into schools and colleges is essential to inspiring the next generation of professionals.

It’s the belief at Jungheinrich that organisations have a social responsibility to help bridge skills shortages and support tomorrow’s workforce, and collaboration between industry and educational institutions and initiatives, such as the Business on the Move board game, will be key to achieving this.

The game, which first launched in 2014, aims to encourage engagement with the supply chain in schools from an early age, while fostering greater gender diversity and challenging preconceptions. From IT experts to web developers and global logistics experts, Business on the Move will help raise awareness of the full range of career opportunities available within the industry.

With few of the 2,800 copies of the original UK version remaining, a cross-section of 42 supply chain organisations from around the world, including Jungheinrich UK, have come together to make the new Global Edition. Players must run multimodal businesses delivering freight as quickly, profitably and responsibly as they can, confronting business challenges met by the industry day-to-day.

Patricia Smedley, one of the game’s two co-creators and a Director of the social enterprise behind Business on the Move, comments:

“At a time of skills shortages and increasing globalisation it has never been more important to build the curiosity and interest of young people in supply chains from an early age. 

“It is important that ‘Logistics & Supply Chains’ become a career of choice rather than a fortunate accident. This requires those businesses and organisations in the sector to connect with young people, celebrating the importance of the industry, its relevance to their learning and its intrinsic ‘wow’ factor.”

Steve Richmond, Director – Logistics Systems, Jungheinrich UK, adds:

“At Jungheinrich, we feel strongly about the social responsibility we as an organisation have to help bridge skills shortages within our industry and support tomorrow’s workforce. Logistics is a compelling career choice offering diverse opportunities, but it is essential we take this message into schools and colleges if we’re to inspire the next generation of professionals. 

“Collaboration between industry and educational institutions and initiatives, such as the Business on the Move board game, will be key to achieving this, and we’re delighted to sponsor its new Global Edition. The game will help steer young people to acquiring the right skills for taking full advantage of the opportunities available to them – in an industry undergoing an exciting period of technological and operational change.”

Business on the Move is designed to meet the needs of widely differing learners, from pupils in primary school to post-graduates in international supply chain management, as well as trainees new to the sector.

Jungheinrich UK will utilise the Business on the Move board game within its own organisation, incorporating it into team bonding and induction days for new recruits, as part of its Apprentice workshops, and to engage with students during career days and fairs.

Latest Education News

Further Education News

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

FE News publish exclusive peer to peer thought leadership articles from our feature writers, as well as user generated content across our network of over 3000 Newsrooms, offering multiple sources of the latest education news across the Education and Employability sectors.

FE News also broadcast live events, podcasts with leading experts and thought leaders, webinars, video interviews and Further Education news bulletins so you receive the latest developments in Skills News and across the Apprenticeship, Further Education and Employability sectors.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
