Enterprising Educators


The CREATE team are thrilled to be working with Scotland's Enterprising Schools to bring an exciting professional learning opportunity for practitioners - The Enterprising Practitioner Programme.

The new, accredited module, developed by CREATE, will be delivered through a combination of online study and face-to-face tutorials: allowing teachers to develop a critical understanding of effective enterprise in education.

This exciting CPD opportunity for practitioners is fully funded meaning it is free of charge to participants.

The module will look at enterprise, creativity, employability, entrepreneurship and innovation as well as how this supports the Scottish Government's work to support the development of an enterprising population and new-buisiness growth.
