Leave with a handy tool to discover your own enterprising potential and a digital badge highlighting your dedication to use enterprise for the benefit of all learners.

DYW Context:
Entrepreneurship and enterprise are widely thought to be a major driver for economic growth, job creation and wider community development – three things that are essential for Scotland to flourish as a nation.

Young people need to be prepared for a world that is changing rapidly. Many of the jobs they will do when they leave school do not yet exist and they will probably have several jobs during their lifetime. They need to have the skills and attitudes to cope with an unpredictable future, to be able to deal with setbacks and disappointments in a positive way, and to continue to learn for the rest of their lives. This is where Enterprise in Education can play a part.

SES definition of Enterprise in Education: "Combining creative ideas and innovative practice across the curriculum to equip young people with a range of skills they can apply to their learning, life and work".

Additional Requirements:
Before attending, we ask that you familiarise yourself with Sections 1 & 2 of Enterprise: 101 – A Teacher’s Guide (approx. 20 mins), available for free download here. (You will require a free membership login to the site first).

Other Info:
This CLPL session will only run once online (11th January 2024). It is available in-person, through local authorities throughout the year.
