Welcome to Wincton City


Welcome to The Wincton City resource which has been created for you by the Universities of Central Lancashire, Northumbria and Winchester with funding provided by the Higher Education Academy. It is a web-based learning resource modelled on a real UK high street community provided for  academic staff and students or others to use. It aims to meet the needs of a range of subject areas in Business Education by simulating the complexities of modern organisations within local communities with many interdependent and inter-related functions and processes. The resource provides opportunities for students to develop and enhance their employability capabilities by providing a realistic work environment with supporting resources. Scenarios and multi-media resources are provided along with supporting teaching notes and case studies. Students are also supported by learning packages focussed on the development of employability skills and links to a range of free e-books.
