Enterprise Cafe (Pre NEET and NEET Specific Programme)
This programme is a ten week programme run once a week for three hours in school or college time. Those attending have to earn the right to attend by participating in at least 70% of their timetabled lessons (schools can amend this figure) and avoiding detention or exclusion during the course of the programme.
The programme starts by exploring the potential in all of us to be enterprising and encourages students to identify their own areas of strength and ability and then supporting the cohort, through a range of bespoke workshops, introductions to role models and mentors, to establish their own enterprise projects, based on their interests, strengths and skills. The programme culminates in an end of programme showcase dinner event, which the students themselves organise, and to which they invite keys guests and stakeholders who can help take the enterprise projects further.
