The School Enterprise Challenge (SEC) is an exciting global business start-up Awards Programme underwritten and fully supported by The Saville Foundation and run by London based Teach A Man To Fish. SEC supports teachers and learners to plan and set up an authentic business in their school.
Participation offers valuable educational experience for young people as the businesses created provide a platform for the development of 21st century work readiness skills and contribute to the development of the whole child by not only focusing on academic studies. Many schools have used the profits generated from their business to support running costs/learners needs e.g. books/school uniforms.
Over the past decade The School Enterprise Challenge has expanded into over 106 countries from Columbia to China, India to South America including many African countries such as Uganda, South Africa and Zimbabwe. This award-winning program reaches well over 5000 schools with more than 60,000 students adopting an entrepreneurial mindset and creating a wide range of businesses that range from framing and agriculture to arts and entertainment.
