The Young Enterprise Scotland (YES) Company Programme is run in partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College and is aimed at budding entrepreneurs in S5 and S6. Learners will be able to gain a qualification at the same SCQF Level as a Higher. The full course award is worth 26-30 Credit Points at SCQF Level 6.
The business and enterprise experience takes place across the academic year and more than one Company Team can operate within one school. Learners receive support and advice from YES, guidance from local business mentors and assessment feedback from staff at Glasgow Kelvin College through online learning using Moodle. At the end of the year, they showcase the innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial attitude they have learned from running their own company.
The award is available for any S5/6 pupil taking part in Young Enterprise Scotland’s Company Programme across the country.
Participants are expected to attend a weekly meeting of their team between September – March, with additional time required to complete tasks and activities individually and as a group.
Company Programme is accredited externally by Glasgow Kelvin College, and certification is provided by Young Enterprise Scotland in partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College upon successful completion of units, or the full course award.
