Wednesday 2nd June - Schools Celebration & Scotland’s Enterprising Schools Awards

As part of our schools celebration we are inviting all primary and secondary schools across Scotland to take part in a day of enterprise activity!

Our Enterprise Challenge

As part of our #FoYE21 we have two exciting digital challenges for schools; one for primary and one for secondary. In November 2021, Scotland will host the United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26. Nations from around the world will meet to take ambitious climate action to tackle the global climate emergency.

We want you to get involved and come up with solutions to the climate emergency. We believe everyone should work #TogetherForOurPlanet

Use your energy, creativity, passion, and skills to help improve life chances and opportunities for people across the world. Come with a product, service or tech solution to solve climate problems caused by waste. Maybe you’re keen to banish fast fashion, or uneccessary packaging? Maybe you want to design greener spaces to live, work and relax? Perhaps you want to create sustainable energy or transport solutions? The sky’s the limit!

Scotland’s Enterprising Schools Awards

At SES, we are honoured to work with practitioners and schools across Scotland and are always inspired by the dedication and enterprising spirit on display. This past year has tested the creativity and resilience of all, and as we have come to expect, Scotland’s educators, school staff and pupils have risen to the challenge, and have done so at an admirable pace.

In recognition of the commitment to enterprise education shown by schools, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Scotland’s Enterprising Education Awards 2021.

The awards are open to practitioners at all levels working with children and young people aged 3 - 18 and any Early Years, Primary, Secondary or ASN establishment in Scotland. Winners will receive a personalized SES Award, £500 towards their enterprise education strategy and celebration through our social media channels. The winning school will also receive a nomination for the JA Worldwide European Entrepreneurial Schools (TES) Award 2021.
