Welcome to the
Like a Boss programme!
Like a Boss (L.A.B) is a free ten-module programme designed for educators to help Y7 - 10 students create their own business for good and build the skills to thrive in the new era of work.
L.A.B gives each student $20 start-up capital to kickstart their social business and an online toolkit for educators packed with everything needed to bring real-world learning into the classroom.
WHAT IS L.A.B?
The L.A.B programme explores ideas like the future of work, design thinking, entrepreneurship, idea generation and creative marketing - and develops 21st Century skills such as creativity, communication, global competence, financial literacy and teamwork along the way.
Mapped to the NZ Curriculum
