UpSchool 1-Day

UpSchool 1-Day

Provides F-10 teachers with an introduction to entrepreneurship education and develops the skills, content, and confidence required to plan entrepreneurship programs in their classrooms.

Program overview

UpSchool 1-Day serves as an introductory workshop and provides both inspiration and support to empower schools to begin integrating entrepreneurship into their schools. Over one school day, the workshop leads participants through three engaging sessions, including: an introduction to entrepreneurial thinking, startups, and planning. It has been designed for maximum educator engagement, flexibility in teacher involvement, and immediate real-life implementation.

For schools wishing to engage with the full experiential learning model, our 3-Day Workshop is designed as an in-depth series which takes participants from idea to execution. Our UpSchool programs are built with flexibility in mind to ensure an appropriate fit to a school’s timetable and curriculum requirements. All UpSchool programs are mapped to the AITSL Australian Professional Teachers Standards, the Australian Curriculum and the Victorian Curriculum.
