The Kidpreneur Online Course is a great classroom tool as it can be done with the teacher’s interaction, or used as an independent or teamwork resource. Recommended for ages 10 – 14 years, it is a good post-SATs activity (year 6), classroom supplement for Maths, English, IT, Business Studies and/or PSHE, “drop-down” day activity or even an after-school resource.
This course is great for boosting confidence, as well as preparing children and young people for the world of work and business by promoting a number of transferrable skills and abilities, such as:
- The importance of planning – including a planning strategy
- Profit & Loss calculations
- Developing selling confidence
- How to market your product or service
- The importance and positive impacts of thinking outside the box
- Dealing with rejection
- …And much more!
I have been in the business of creative education for over a decade and for the past two years I have been teaching entrepreneurial workshops to children, young people and adults in schools and centres nationwide.
Throughout this course I draw on my own startup experiences as detailed in my eBook “Starting From the Bottom Up” which can be found here
You will also receive a free copy of the eBook with this course.
