The Kidpreneur course is for any child who is for any child who has a hobby or passion and has ever had a fleeting thought about how to make money from it, any child who has an interest in business or any child who would like to know a little more about what it takes to setup and run your own business. Not every child will end the course wanting to be a kidpreneur or future entrepreneur, but every child will learn something new and useful for the present or the near or distant future.
The course has been designed to be taught to children and young people from age 9 upwards. It is a detailed course, which can be “stripped back” or simplified in order to be taught to the younger end of the age range or over a shorter period of time! The course consists of several activities, challenged and Keynote/PowerPoint presentations, keeping teaching paper-free, visual and interactive
