From Job Seeker to Job Creator – Social Enterprise Schools
WHY – THE NEED
One of our great challenges is how we prepare students for the 21st century and a knowledge economy that is rapidly changing, highly globalised and uncertain. To date we have successfully prepared students as job seekers for positions and industries with strong employment. However, as we speak these industries are moving employment off-shore and to technology.
HOW – THE APPROACH
Globally there is a fundamental shift towards students being supported to become job creators through involvement in entrepreneurial learning. Thanks to a partnership with the Social Enterprise Academy, ACRE offers Social Enterprise Schools across Victoria.
Entrepreneurial learning engages a students entire range of talents and results in experiential education that builds leadership, enterprise and employability skills.
