Enterprise in Education & Enterprise Champion Awards 2013

Lynne Lauder, Enterprise Co-ordinator and Daniel Barrie, Quality Improvement Officer, Curriculum Support team are busy preparing for the next round of Enterprise in Education and Enterprise Champion Awards.  

The Awards which were launched in November 2006  have proved very successful over the years allowing schools to celebrate excellent practice in Enterprise in Education.   The young people have a key role to play in the awards and benefit from seeing the work they have been doing in school celebrated across the authority.

Schools should complete their checklist for the appropriate level of Award, Gold; Gold Year 2; Gold Year 3 or Platinum and submit it along with a folder of evidence.  The portfolio should also include Enterprise Champion nominations for individuals ( not employees of Falkirk Council) who have motivated and inspired young people to be more enterprising.  Falkirk employees should be recognised through the  Learning to Achieve process. Schools aiming for Platinum Status will be invited to host a  half day Quality Assurance visit.

This link will take you to information on the Enterprise in Education pages of Glow which may help in preparing a submission. https://portal.glowscotland.org.uk/establishments/falkirkcouncil/Enterprise%20in%20Education/Lists/Pages/Enterprise%20in%20Education%20Awards.aspx
