Social Enterprise in Schools
'Social Enterprise in Schools' is a collaborative, hands-on experience giving young people opportunities to run a business
Working with specially-trained local entrepreneurs students set up and manage their own social enterprise - a business with a social purpose.
Teachers also benefit from specialist workshops, support and resources to bring entrepreneurship to life in the classroom.
Most of all it builds skills, confidence and links with the community (and it's fun)
What do students think about the 'Social Enterprise in Schools' Program?
"It's very different. I've never done something like this before"
"The best thing about this program is that the children get to run it!"
"I just think it gives students an opportunity to start working together"
