Team Programme is an enterprise journey for students over the age of 15 who have mild to moderate learning difficulties. Designed to aid young people’s transition from education into independent living and employment, the programme develops confidence and life skills through working as a team to set up and run an enterprise. This programme comes with support, resources and potential accreditation at SCQF Level 3 administered by Young Enterprise Scotland.
Students interact with adults and grow in confidence as they run their own student company over an academic year. They make all the decisions about their enterprise, from deciding on the name and product to selling to the public with pop up shops. Each student takes on a job role and works as part of a team to be responsible for an area of the business such as finance, sales or marketing. Students gain confidence of handling money and understanding numbers in a practical context. They have the opportunity to open a bank account, interact with business volunteers and customers at sales events and present to an audience.
