CVM World Mobile Minibus Classroom!

At CVM World we provide a range of minibuses built on different manufacturer base vehicles, in unique styles, multiple seating arrangements and with wheelchair accessibility. Our aim has always been to deliver Minibuses that escape the ordinary.

We recognise that school budgets can be restrictive. As School Business Managers juggle financing education with the costs of the day to day operation of the school. Combine this with tailoring the educational experience to individual needs and a great way to diversify your Minibus investment is to opt for a Minibus Mobile Classroom.

Our Mobile Classrooms have featured on BBC Look North and BBC Breakfast. They offer a unique opportunity for pupil engagement and assist in improving attendance and access to further education. Which has been demonstrated with excellent results across the schools who currently operate them.

Our Mobile Minibus Classrooms help provide an inclusive, flexible learning environment for students. They may be used to take the classroom outdoors, allowing the natural environment to be fully utilised as an educational resource. What could be better than having the ability to transport staff and pupils on an educational visit as well as have the tools at your disposal to immediately move to a classroom-based experience?

At a time when physical and mental well-being have never been a higher priority, the mobile classroom offers an ideal resource to help nurture and engage pupils in a safe and secure environment. It has clear benefits in the drive to reduce exclusions and promote attendance as well as allowing vulnerable and disaffected students to access education in a high-quality setting.

This Minibus Mobile Classroom has a 12-seat capacity with 10 seats in the rear for pupil transport. Each bank of seats has its own access to domest plug sockets and a foldable table. This allows for easy accessibility to learning experiences and the utilisation of all the modern technologies you would expect in a building based classroom.

To allow for interactive learning within the Mobile Classroom there is a rail above the door so that a whiteboard or projector can be attached for Visual Learning Aids. This Minibus is perfect for delivering the classroom to the learner.

Increase Pupil Engagement!

Providing a resource such as a Mobile Classroom allows education to be enhanced by taking the Minibus to the desired location to ensure the full environmental learning experience is caught.
