Primary Schools

We offer a variety of programmes for young people in primary education across Scotland. Our programmes are flexible and will engage all learners in a ’learning by doing’ way.

Support materials for teaching staff are provided. Young people will enhance their personal development skills, team skills, improve problem-solving skills and develop leadership and presentation skills.

Our primary school programmes are reflective of the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence and they work towards the Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) ’I Can’ Statements.

We will add value through the inclusion of expert business volunteers who support our Programme Executives. Young people will think about what it takes to be entrepreneurial and enterprising in learning, life, and work.
