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.

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.
