OUR APPROACH

Our aim is to hear the stories behind the stats, to build our thought leadership in both Financial and Enterprise Education which will strengthen our understanding of what support young people need to thrive.

Overview

The impact of our Young People’s Enterprise Education Programmes is measured against our core Employability Competencies Framework . We believe that these are the skills that are essential for all young people to develop so that they are ready for the world of work.

The impact of our Educator Facing Programmes is built around the three core components that we know make a significant difference to the knowledge, confidence and pedagogy of educators delivering financial and enterprise education to young people. The three components are; High quality tools and resources, Professional development opportunities and In-school mentoring.

In our approach we look at both the direct and indirect impact of our programmes on the employability competencies of young people. We know that it is not just the content of our programmes that makes the difference to young people and we need to understand the indirect influence of ‘developers’.

For Enterprise Education ‘developers’ are the volunteers who bring the content of the programmes to life and are able to share and model the skills that young people need to develop to thrive in their future employment.

Teachers are also developers and through our educator facing work we can indirectly influence the skills of young people. By training teachers, we develop a network of skilled and knowledgeable developers who are able to embed both financial education and now enterprise education into their lessons.

 

 

We are committed to ensuring that our research and evaluation approach is an engaging and useful experience, that meaningfully facilitates opportunities to hear the voice of young people, educators and volunteers.

Our aim is to hear the stories behind the stats, to build our thought leadership in both Financial and Enterprise Education which will strengthen our understanding of what support young people need to thrive.

The insights we gain through our activities are used as a mechanism for improving and innovating our work.
