– Theme: Building programmes to enhance employability, entrepreneurship and life skills

– Format: Workshop

In the last years, entrepreneurship education has been consistently increased in the curriculum activities of our School. We took part in the company programme for the past five years. Thanks to the great work of the teachers involved the school was able to win the national competition of the Company Programme – Biz Factory 2020 with the mini-company Green Savers JA and to win the Creativity Award of Walt Disney Company with SOS Food JA.

Entrepreneurship education activities started in the school year 2015/2016 and involved for the first time five courses. The project had from the beginning a strong impact on our students and so the school decided to extend the Company programme to all the third classes of our school. Since the school year 2016/17, this work experience has become compulsory involving about 300 students, 13 teachers and a contact person for each student.

Today more than 1500 students have successfully carried out the Company programme while the teachers appointed as tutors are about 40. Even all the teachers of each class support the students in their project. At the end of the year, all the 13 projects were presented publicly in the school and all the teachers and students were involved also in the FB contest. In September 2020 a modern Fab Lab will be activated in our school.

According to the project, some laboratories will be realized to be used as business incubators, to help new start-up companies to be developed by people of our territory even in extracurricular hours.
