Enterprise College Curriculum

Implementation

1. The enterprise curriculum

This digital course is designed to facilitate each student in developing a marketable product or business through an enterprise business cycle. Students progress at their own pace through the programme to build their experience and understanding in designing and operating a small business as well as develop transferable skills for their personal lives and towards their aspirations. The course design is based on the understanding that through self-determined learning students can gain independence and agency and find a sense of purpose.

2. The industry curriculum
Coffee shop

This course is designed to provide a rich and deep practical work experience interwoven with industry recognised qualifications and academic support to enable students to gain employability skills and a strong foundational knowledge of the coffee industry. The aim of the course is to empower students to build their profile of professional barista skills and coffee shop expertise and apply their learning to their enterprise and pursue their future employment aspirations.

Bike workshop

Within our Park Royal site we are also offering a bike mechanic opportunity. Our expert staff work practically with students to develop their technique and competence in diagnosing and repairing bicycles for a range of models and specifications. The aim of this curriculum is for students to develop diagnostic skills, a practical knowledge and understanding as well as the technical management of bike restoration and repairs with a view to working with individuals and local community networks.

3. The personal and professional development curriculum

This course is designed to guide students in the development of self-agency, self-regulation and physiological and mental wellbeing. Through building secure and trusting relationships with staff and peers, students explore and develop their physiological regulation and psychological flexibility and are provided with rich opportunities to generalise themes and skills to wider aspects of their life both inside and out of the college environment.
