The British Council and the Victoria Mutual Foundation in collaboration with the Ministry of Education Youth and Information are inviting Secondary Schools to apply to be a part of phase 3 of our Social Enterprise in Secondary Schools Programme focusing on Social Enterprise Skills for young people (6 positions available). This is a student-led and teacher-guided programme which focuses on provides training for students and teachers from grades 7 to 9 from selected schools. So far we have engaged 7,000 students in 14 schools.
The Social Enterprise in Secondary Schools Programme is designed to increase the student’s knowledge of social innovation and entrepreneurship, whilst also developing these core skills for learning, life, and work. To address the gap in global skills development, the British Council identified a set of six core skills which are critical to meeting the needs of students in the 21st century in a globalised economy.
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
- Collaboration and Communication
- Creativity and Imagination
- Digital Literacy
- Student Leadership and Personal Development
