Resources for students and teachers

Downloadable case studies

We regularly receive questions from students and teachers who want to know more about ethics and sustainability. We believe it is important for young people to ask these questions so that they can develop a greater understanding of these complex issues.  

We have produced case studies to help students understand the issues and challenges related to ethical trading and sustainability. These are particularly relevant for business studies. 

In addition, students can download a case study about the Panorama programme: Primark on the Rack, aired on the BBC in 2008, which alleged the use of child labour in Primark's supply chain in India.  The case study looks at what Primark had to do to clear its name and prove these allegations were false.
