  • Overview of the course

    more less
    This QCF qualification provides learners with a basic introduction into the main principles of enterprise. Learners will research local enterprising people or entrepreneurs, and identify their own enterprise skills and areas for growth. They’ll then apply these skills through taking part in a brief enterprise activity. The objective of this knowledge-based qualification is to help learners develop an awareness of their own enterprise skills, as well as those of others, in order to progress to higher level learning and eventual employment. Learners may not be aware of the skills they already possess – this qualification will allow them to become aware of these skills in order to be enterprising within education, life and work.
