The School Enterprise Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for all the schools because it's easy for all primary and secondary teachers to use, even if they don't know much about business, as it gives clear step-by-step guidance.The programme has three steps.

If you are a school headmaster, talk to your teachers about the programme and start planning which teachers could lead a group of students. If you are a teacher, speak to your school administration and fellow teachers to decide who can join you. If you are a parent or student, talk to your school administration about the programme and all the benefits of participating!

To learn more about the challenge and what the programme entails, we have provided a useful guide below.

  • Can our school have more than one school business team?
    Yes, absolutely! Schools can form multiple school business teams to encourage more student participation and foster entrepreneurship among a broader range of students. Each team can focus on different business ideas or aspects of entrepreneurship, providing students with diverse opportunities to develop their skills and creativity.
  • How many students should be involved in the school business?
    Generally we say that the more students involved in the school business, the better! However, we do understand that how many students you can involve in your business will depend on the size of your school. We recommend involving at least 15 students in your business team but you are welcome to involve as many as 45 students or more. Remember, if more students are involved, that means more students are developing essential life skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership and problem-solving. It will also mean that the business has an even bigger, more positive impact on your school and local community!
  • I work with a network of schools and would like them to participate in the School Enterprise Challenge. How can I arrange this?
    If you work with a network of schools and would like them to take part in the School Enterprise Challenge please send us an email to info@schoolenterprisechallenge.org.
