What Is Entrepreneurial Education?
Entrepreneurial Education supports students to develop their Capabilities for work and life in a way that values their input, that caters for their diverse needs and interests and – most importantly – allows them to learn by finding and resolving real world problems worth solving. It is a way of educating our students with skills for the future, rather than skills for the past.
Opportunities also exist for students not in the Special Interest to engage with Entrepreneurial Learning. This includes:
- Classroom Activities using Inquiry and Product Based Learning
- LIFT (Leadership, Innovation Futures, Teamwork)
- Year 7 and 8 Empowering Futures
- Year 10 Product Development
- Year 11 Business Innovation
- Short Programs including:
- Young Change Agents
