Curriculum for Excellence and Enterprise in Education
As part of the new national curriculum for 3-18, enterprise in education has a huge impact on pupils.
It offers a valuable opportunity for a child’s personal growth and enhances pupils’ life chances and choices. Enterprise in Education can help them to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society and at work, with a clear understanding of their role and place in society and in the wider world.
Enterprising Learning & Teaching
In accordance with Learning and Teaching Scotland, enterprising teaching and learning should;
provide opportunities for learners to think and act in enterprising ways
provide a clear focus on personal transferable skills to be used vocationally and academically
provide opportunities for work-related experiences, both in and out with the classroom
adopt an enterprising approach to learning and teaching
promote positive values and attitudes
provide opportunities for learners to develop skills such as problem solving, decision making and risk taking
provide entrepreneurial experiences for all pupils
Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) is a seven-year programme that aims to better prepare children and young people for the world of work. This programme builds on the foundations already in place as part of Curriculum for Excellence. The programme’s headline aim is to reduce youth unemployment by 40% by 2021.
In order to ensure that all pupils are aware of the DYW opportunities available to them Miss Hendrie will be producing a weekly DYW bulletin which will serve as a reminder to pupils. To view the bulletins, click on the links below.
