Why take part?

There are so many reasons to take part in the School Enterprise Challenge!

It is a practical programme which enables young people to develop skills which are not covered in the classroom (experiential learning).

It also provides teachers with
real-life examples to bring their teaching to life and allows them to develop new teaching practices (experiential teaching).

All participants in the programme are part of a
global community of enterprising schools which provides lots of inspiration and is a place for collaboration and sharing of best practices.
