Social Enterprise Schools is a fully funded programme that supports interdisciplinary learning.
Young people (aged 5-18) are asked about what they care about and then they are encouraged and supported to come up with an enterprising solution. Inspirational pupil workshops are led by facilitators who are all experienced social entrepreneurs.
Last year, the young people at Linlithgow Academy were asked what they care about. Their reply was “male suicide”. The pupils then started thinking about how they could develop a social enterprise around this social cause and produced “Chat n’ chill”. Their enterprise is that they will sell ice cream at lunchtime in a bid to encourage people to come together. Any profits from their enterprise will be given to a local charity that supports people with poor mental health.
Aimed at improving employability prospects for the future workforce, this programme is free of charge and designed to support teachers with careers education.
