For NQTs and those in early stages of their teaching careers, join us as we discuss the scope and impact of enterprise education and explore where it can fit within the curriculum and wider education policy. Discover some simple ways to put it into practice with your learners and have a go at planning your own enterprise activity.
Leave with a handy tool to discover your own enterprising potential and an 'Enterprise Champion' digital badge highlighting your dedication to use enterprise for the benefit of all learners.
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".
Staff will be required to participate in breakout discussions so a working microphone is essential, cameras switched on is preferred but not essential.
This session will follow a flipped learning approach. Participants should familiarise themselves with sections 1 & 2 of Enterprise 101: A Teacher's Guide (approximately 20 minutes worth of reading) in advance. Enterprise 101 is available for free download here: https://bit.ly/3Nwzj2P.
