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.
