Structure

1. The enterprise curriculum

The enterprise curriculum is composed of 10 units each of which last approximately two weeks and focus on a different aspect of the enterprise cycle whilst building on previous learning. There is a guided timeframe for the completion of each unit, however it is flexible to enable students to progress at their own pace with the support of their job coach to ensure quality of learning. Skills and therapy approaches

Through these project students enhance their project management competence and draw on their learning from the enterprise, industry and personal and professional development curriculums to move their social enterprise forward.
