The Course

Entrepreneurship refers to an individual’s ability to turn ideas into action and is therefore a key competence for all, helping young people to be more creative and self-confident in whatever they undertake. (Yong Zhao, 2012)


The missing link is an entrepreneurial mindset – a critical mix of success oriented attitudes of initiative, intelligent risk-taking, collaboration, and opportunity recognition. (Aspen Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy Group, 2008)


At St Paul’s Entrepreneurial Thinking will be developed through Problem Based Learning and this will be explored through the course.

The Program

The course will consist of three sessions. The first session will explore how to transform tasks to allow for Entrepreneurial learning opportunities. In the remaining sessions, participants will be transforming their own tasks and sharing their ideas.
