Since the Government introduced “enterprise education” in 2004 it has been transformed.
Across the region, there are many examples of enterprising schools where it is embedded into the curriculum and fully embraced by all teaching staff.
However, there are still some schools at the early stages of enterprise and yet to reap the full benefits of how it can impact on school culture.
Enterprise education is not a subject to be taught in isolation. The skills and attributes it develops fit within all subjects and school activities. Enterprising skills such as creativity, problem-solving, risk-taking, initiative, selling ideas, decision-making and communication are beneficial to all students and will help to raise both their aspirations and their levels of achievement.
