Nurturing Next Generation of Scottish Entrepreneurs

School pupils are setting their sights on future careers as business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators thanks to a unique new partnership that brings specialist training and resources to Scottish teachers.  CREATE, in partnership with, Scotland’s Enterprising Schools, have developed the Enterprising Practitioner Programme which has been accessed by over 900 teachers since it launched in October last year. Carol Langston, head of Create, commented: “This demonstrates a growing recognition for the value enterprising skills bring to workplaces throughout Scotland, as well as the wider economy. Our teachers are key role models for the next generation and it is vital that we support them to bring entrepreneurial skills to the school curriculum.”
