What is the Student Hub?

The Student Hub is a unique discussion platform where young people can deepen their understanding of the topics covered by our weekly resources.

They can publish their opinions to a global audience and join informed, moderated discussions with peers from across the world. Activities are designed by our in-house teachers, who join the discussion, along with experts and business volunteers, to provide feedback.
