The School Enterprise Challenge is an award-winning educational programme that is available to any school around the world through a free, all-inclusive online platform.
Developed by international charity Teach A Man To Fish, our experienced team has helped over 430,000 young people to develop new skills through planning and running a business since 2006.
In the School Enterprise Challenge, young people develop essential life and business skills through practical, hands-on experiences. The programme supports teachers and students to plan and set up real businesses at their school. From coming up with your own business idea to writing a business plan and actually launching your school business, we’ll support you the whole way!
We help teachers to learn new skills and methodologies for experiential education and schools gain extra income for essential resources. You can also win cash prizes for your school!
