  • Here are 4 top tips for teachers taking part in the School Enterprise Challenge:
    • Tip 1: Get to know the educational materials
      • They encourage teachers to register their school and familiarise themselves with the content of the educational materials before gathering the team of students. It’s always good to know what to expect before you start!
    • Tip 2: Get support from your colleagues
      • They recommend having permission from your school management before registering and having at least one other teacher who could support you with running the School Enterprise Challenge at your school. Involving more teachers makes it easier to manage the programme and adds to the richness of the experience!
    • Tip 3: Plan your participation
      • Look at your school calendar, think about when your school holidays and exam periods are, and plan accordingly!
    • Tip 4: Get up and running quickly
      • Step 1 (coming up with a Business Idea) and Step 2 (creating a Business Plan) can be done quite quickly. In fact, many teams complete the first two steps in under two months. The quicker you complete these first two steps, the sooner you can take on Step 3 (launching and running the business and completing an Annual Report) which is the most fun part of the programme and also the section where the most learning and skills acquisition happens!
