Secondary Schools

We offer a variety of programmes for young people in secondary education across Scotland. Our programmes are suitable for every year group unless stated otherwise. There are day activities, a monthly challenge, and our year-long Company Programme.

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 secondary school programmes are reflective of the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence. They also work towards the Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) ’I Can’ Statements at all phases.

We will add value through the inclusion of expert business volunteers who support our Programme Executives. We have brilliant Local Area Teams with Link Teachers and Business Advisors who help run the Company Programme. Young people will think about what it takes to be entrepreneurial and enterprising in learning, life and work.
