Once over academic year
Running over the course of a full academic year, young people from S5 & S6 start up their own student company, running through the key milestones of developing an idea, conducting market research, creating the product or service, promoting that product and ultimately trading it.
Company Programme can be used to provide a real-life context to many subject areas — design and computing involved in the design of the product, English to develop the persuasive language for marketing, or Maths to establish a profitable selling price - students' involvement in Company Programme provides a rich real-life learning experience. hools have also used Company Programme to support groups of young people who may require additional intervention due to low self-esteem, lack of confidence or social challenges.
Schools may wish to register for SCQF Level 6 Accreditation.
Participating schools will liaise with their Local Area Team and Business Advisors to arrange sessions to suit.
Company Programme runs digitally and in-person throughout Scotland and is open to all S5 & S6 students. There is also specific provision for ASN through 'Team Programme' and the option to register for SCQF Level 3 Accreditation (15 credit points). By signing up through e-sgoil, Lead Teachers have the opportunity to build links with other schools as they progress through Company Programme for the first time. This could also be a route for remote students from a number of schools to work together to create one company.
