By starting a small business, pupils learn a range of skills, sometimes without even realising it. And often the pupils who shine are the ones you least expect to. Who knows, it may even inspire some to become the budding entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
Make £5 Grow offers pupils the opportunity to develop essential skills that will prove invaluable both in their academic life and future careers. These include:
The programme boosts confidence and encourages pupils to 'come out of their shells' - it's great fun too!
Make £5 Grow supports Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PHSE) education as part of the National Curriculum in a fun and engaging way, especially in financial education. The enterprise aspects of the programme enhance employability skills too.
We provide a series of modules and guidance on how to run the programme.
It's very flexible and can be run over just a couple of weeks or a term, in or around existing lessons.
