Our YouthPreneur course is not only for children and young people who are wanting to learn about starting a business or monetising a hobby. The course consists of lessons and exercises that are great for developing and putting into practice mathematical skills (through a range of profit and loss scenarios) and elements of English such as creative writing (through target customer narratives and marketing exercises) and literacy. In addition to this, we have challenges like our “random sell” challenge which are great for boosting self confidence and creative thinking.
The course is also great for engagement and encouraging students to focus, as the work that they are doing is effectively based around their interests. The course will encourage them to create a “make believe” scenario around their interests and then engage in the various activities within the course, based on that scenario.
Having worked with children and young people, including students with ADD or ADHD, the most effective ways to engage them in school-based learning was to build projects around their interests. For this reason we have made some slight adaptations to the original course and created a version that is specifically for focus and engagement.
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. This means that it is very easy to do the course between home and school, where both teacher and parent can engage with the student and also track their progress.
The course is designed for individual use, but students can enrol at the same time and work through the course together, even partnering on project ideas and taking part in tasks and challenges together.
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.
