Improving the Skills and Commercial Education of Young People in Wales
Young Enterprise empowers young people to develop their personal and business skills: this project specifically supports their work in Wales so that enterprise education is prioritised and embedded in Welsh schools.
The primary aim is to help approximately 3,000 learners aged 5-24 in educational centres across the country to develop essential employability skills such as confidence, communication, organisation, initiative, resilience, teamwork, problem solving and financial capability; and, to develop core behaviours such as self-esteem, aspiration, career intention and work readiness.
In 2018-19 the project will also train 70 teachers in enterprise and employability education and 20 teachers in financial and enterprise education. It will also involve the recruitment of volunteers from the world of business and commerce
