With the current focus being the need to get children and young people back on track with their education, the YouthPreneur course is a perfect resource to implement in (and out of) classrooms right now. Here’s why:
Students can do this course whether they are attending their school premises or not. The course can be done remotely, using a PC, tablet or phone – making it easily accessible for the great majority of students. This also means that the course can be done between school and home, or during the term time as a class group – and also individually, during the school holidays.
The course contains elements of English and Maths, in line with national curriculum – with scope to use different sections of the course to enhance on more English or mathematically focussed work. For example, Profit & Loss section has a number of maths exercises, complete with calculation breakdowns etc. Teachers can create more scenarios around calculating and problem solving if they want. They can also limit the amount of mathematical exercises they do to fit around time constraints.
There is no need for a teacher to work through every single part of the course with the students. They can introduce a new section with the children and leave them to get on the the exercises – checking in on them (either physically or virtually, depending on whether the course is being done in a physical classroom or not).
Work can be done individually or in a virtual or physical team. The course can be adapted so that challenges can be done in teams or individually.
The objective of the course is to encourage and promote creative thinking, self-confidence and problem solving skills through entrepreneurial education. The students will therefore be doing work that is centred around turning a passion, hobby or interest into a business. As the work is focussed on their interests, students will be more motivated them to learn.
A great PSHE resource. This course covers a number of topics from finance management to resilience and dealing with rejection. It will certainly teach the students a number of skills whilst preparing them for the outside world of work and enterprise.
The course can be used to emphasise the importance of education and how vital it is to our success and the achievement of our goals. Aspects of their school education are incorporated in the various sections of this course. There s also a section on Education Appreciation to further emphasise this message.
