What is the School Enterprise Challenge?

Put simply, it’s an opportunity for young people to become entrepreneurs whilst still at school. 

That’s right! Students take the lead to set up a school-based business that generates real profits which they can use to support their school, wider community or a social cause. From idea to execution - it’s youth driven the whole way!

During the course of the programme, students learn about business (market research, financial literacy, etc.) and they also develop essential life skills (communication, problem solving, leadership, etc.) that they will need to succeed in the real world.

Why should your school take part?

You’ll be joining a growing network of schools from all over the globe that are committed to preparing their students for the real world!

Once you register your school you can expect:

Participating in the School Enterprise Challenge is easy and flexible. We provide all the resources and support you need to get started. Plus, there are no entry fees or minimum requirements - you can tailor the programme to fit the needs and interests of your students.
