Schools are free to cover enterprise and entrepreneurship within their personal, social, health and economic education.
The Government’s careers strategy, published in December 2017, aims to give young people from all backgrounds the opportunity to learn from employers about work and the skills that are valued in the workplace: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/careers-strategy-making-the-most-of-everyones-skills-and-talents.
Statutory guidance sets out further details about the ambition that every school should offer every young person at least seven encounters with employers, including those who are self-employed, during their education as part of a high quality careers programme: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/careers-guidance-provision-for-young-people-in-schools. The Careers & Enterprise Company’s network of Enterprise Advisers will support the delivery of this ambition. Enterprise Advisers are senior business volunteers who help schools to work with local businesses.
