The British Council, on Tuesday, launched phase two of the Social Enterprise in Secondary Schools programme adding eight new schools to the six that took part in the pilot phase earlier this year.
The three-year programme, a partnership with Victoria Mutual Foundation and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, aims to increase students' knowledge of social innovation and entrepreneurship. Using the British Council's Social Enterprise in Schools Resource Pack, which also incorporates the British Council core skills, it is expected that this programme will help to address the gap in global skills development which is critical to meeting the needs of students in the 21st century in a globalised economy. In addition to the six British Council core skills — critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration and communication, creativity and imagination, citizenship, digital literacy, and student leadership — the programme will also include financial literacy as the seventh core skill.
