Year 1: Community Building

Introduction

In Year 1, students will experience entrepreneurship using a design process and collaborate to create 1 or more community-based projects. The power of working together for the common good through collective action will be demonstrated throughout the course and is central to the students’ learning experience. Students will include community members in the process to learn how they can take action in their community. Student assessment will focus on the development of essential skills for entrepreneurship. These skills will be a foundation for all other course materials including community projects, business startup and career pathways. The course will be delivered through five modules, each representing a building block in the entrepreneurial process and finishing with an event to showcase their community-based project(s).
