Team Programme is a year-long enterprise journey for students over the age of 15 who have mild to moderate additional support needs.
Designed to aid young people’s transition from education into independent living and employment, the programme develops confidence and life skills through working as a team to set up and run an enterprise.
Students interact with adults and grow in confidence as they run their own student company. They make all the decisions about their enterprise, from deciding on the name and product to selling to the public with pop up shops.
Each student takes on a job role and works as part of a team to be responsible for an area of the business such as finance, sales or marketing. Students gain confidence of handling money and understanding numbers in a practical context. They have the opportunity to open a bank account, interact with business volunteers and customers at sales events and present to an audience.
Full editable teacher resources are provided to guide the teacher through the process of setting up and running the business. Resources have been designed to be flexible and meet a range of abilities and needs.
Our Vision is for Scotland to be a place where all young people are given the opportunity to have a rewarding future in work and life - no matter where they start their journey.
Our Mission is to inspire and equip young people, irrespective of their background, to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise education.
In everything that we do, we will work with the following values: Integrity, Enthusiasm, Creativity & Collaboration.
