Why The Y-Preneur Course?

Education is essential for every child and young person. Mainstream and conventional education is not for everyone.

In my current role and as inclusion manager – and having worked with children and young people with difficulties and needs ranging from ASD to SEMH, it is clear that alternative forms of education are often needed to keep various children and young people engaged in learning.

Young people with SEBD in particular, often struggle to see how many aspects of education will contribute to their lives and future goals. The Y-Preneur course forms a link between education and future aspirations, while demonstrating the importance of literacy, numeracy and communication skills in every day life.

The Y-Preneur Online Course encourages children and young people to think and plan for their future, based on current interests, hobbies, skills and talents. They are then encouraged to work backwards from their goals, creating a plan and acquiring a range of skills today, that will equip them for the near and distant future.

The course is currently available in three forms. You can click on the links below to view course details and content:

Y-Preneur Course for Inclusion and Engagement

A mentorship package is also available for individuals who are unable to remain in a mainstream setting and will work through this course as part of outreach learning.

When enrolling on the course, each student has their own individual login and can keep track of their progress throughout the course. They can also work remotely from a laptop/computer, tablet or phone – making the course easily accessible between home and school, where both teacher and parent can engage with the student and also track their progress. The course can also be worked on individually or in small groups and tasks can be adapted by educators to encourage teamwork and pupil assessment

This course has already been purchased and accessed by individual learners as well as groups and for the last 5 years has been funded by Camden Council as a summer course for 13 – 16 year olds, with consistently very positive feedback. A younger learner also recently published a book and has been documenting his business journey, which started with this course

The course ends with a section on education appreciation, which emphasises just how much of an important role education plays in helping us to achieve our dreams. This is evident throughout the course, as students are not only educating themselves as they work through the course, but they are also drawing on existing knowledge to help them to complete tasks and challenges.
