Dedicated and committed teachers are absolutely integral to our programme because they are our direct interface with our Entrepreneur Society members, and importantly, they promote entrepreneurship, and are responsible for sharing our content with our young learners. Exposure to entrepreneurship learnings also empowers our educators; not only can it broaden their scope and general knowledge, but can also add value to how they bring across lesson work in the classroom.
Do you see the value and importance of teaching entrepreneurship in schools? Do you want to play a role in developing our youth to their full potential? Do you embrace the principle of continuous learning? Then this course is for you!
The training programme covers the following:
- Programme overview, i.e. What are societies? Why are societies necessary in the school context?
- Entrepreneur Society structure, i.e. Community Entrepreneur Societies, Schools’ Entrepreneur Societies, University Entrepreneur Societies
- Strategy and intent for setting up Entrepreneur Societies
- Modules/course material
