Enterprise Education offers schools and their students a chance to work alongside business professionals who can inspire and help prepare for an exciting and rewarding career. Bringing industry professionals into the classroom has numerous benefits for both students and teachers.
Benefits for Students
Students get a chance to work with someone who isn’t their teacher. In our experience we have seen this;
- Motivate students who have become disengaged.
- Help students learn work based applications for academic classroom skills.
- Identify career paths and local employment opportunities.
Benefits for Teachers
Meeting business professionals also helps teachers refresh their knowledge of industry practice so lessons are current and relevant.
Enterprise learning requires an environment where pupils are expected to take personal responsibility for their own actions.” OFSTED
