Social Enterprise in Secondary Schools Programme
SESS-J has impacted students and teachers across the island through social awareness activities, club activities, training, project activities, social media and publication engagement.
Secondary Schools across the island were selected to participate in the pilot programme which aimed to increase students’ knowledge of social innovation and entrepreneurship. Using the British Council’s Social Enterprise in Schools Resource Pack, which also incorporates the British Council core skills, it is expected that this programme will help to address the gap in global skills development which is critical to meeting the needs of students in the 21st century in a globalised economy.
In addition to the six core skills – critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration and communication, creativity and imagination, citizenship, digital literacy, and student leadership – the programme will also include financial literacy as the 7th core skill.
