Bridging the gap between school and work is challenging for young people, and can be especially hard for young people growing up in disadvantaged communities. Young people need their aspirations raised, support to learn employability skills and help in fostering a ‘can do’ attitude. They need role models and real business experience to gain the confidence, knowledge and motivation to succeed. Enterprise in education is about taking an enterprising approach to teaching and learning. Enterprise encourages all young people to learn and develop in a way that meets their needs and develops skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.
