School Enterprise Challenge for young People to develop Business Skills and Essential Life Skills

Deadline: 23-Aug-23

The Teach a Man to Fish is seeking applications for the School Enterprise Challenge, an international business programme for schools that helps young people all around the world to develop business skills and essential life skills.

In the School Enterprise Challenge, it is the students that take the lead, with teachers playing a supporting role, to complete 3 steps:

  • Step 1: Come up with your own BUSINESS IDEA

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