The School Enterprise Challenge is an international business programme for schools run by the educational charity Teach A Man To Fish.

It guides and supports teachers and students to plan and set up real, sustainable school businesses. Students get the chance to gain hands-on experience of running a real business and generate real profits to help support their school or a social cause of their choice.

Schools have set up an amazing variety of businesses. In 2017, more than 6000 schools from over 100 countries registered to take part and the businesses students set up ranged from fly fishing in Belize, to an inter-schools newspaper in India and a car wash in South Africa.

The programme empowers students to develop essential 21st century skills in a fun and interactive way. Schools have the chance to get recognized at an international level and win prizes along the way for their outstanding work and impact.
The School Enterprise Challenge runs all year around. There are three certificate levels for schools to take part in: BRONZE, SILVER and GOLD.
The School Enterprise Challenge Awards Programme is FREE to join and offers a wide range of learning and award opportunities for both students and teachers. Here are just some of the benefits of taking part:
  • Teach 21st century skills in a fun and innovative way-take learning out of the classroom and into the real world
  • Experience planning and running a REAL business
  • Raise extra income for your school
