Young Enterprise Scotland

Young Enterprise Scotland has been operating for over 40 years and each year works with over 10,000 students across Scotland in a variety of inspiring enterprise and entrepreneurship programmes. Our programmes - a number of which carry SQA accreditation - are suited for young people aged 5-30 across primary, secondary and tertiary educations, as well as in prisons, secure and residential units and with community groups.

Our Company Programme is the ultimate business and enterprise experience for S5/S6 and is credit-rated at SCQF Level 6. The pupils set-up and run their own company through the academic year with support from local business volunteers and Young Enterprise Scotland staff, with the opportunity to compete on a local, regional, national and European level to be crowned Company of the Year. They develop a wide range of skills and receive an invaluable entrepreneurial experience. All Company Programme pupils can sit the reflective Strathclyde ‘Exam’ which is offered in partnership with the University of Strathclyde Business School and the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship.
