The YES Company Programme is our most immersive enterprise experience which runs over an academic year for S5 and S6 students. Young people learn by doing as they set up a business, assign leadership roles, brainstorm product and service ideas and launch onto the market. We focus on ensuring students develop transferable enterprise skills that they can build on through their next phase after high school.
Students work in teams of 2-32 and there is a bank of online, interactive resources and a Milestone Map to guide their journey. We also aim to match all companies and teams with a Business Mentor to question and support them.
DYW Live is setting up the first ever online cohort for students taking part in the company programme across Scotland. We will be running a company with up to 20 learners from acorss the country.
Meetings will occur Mondays 16:30-17:30, with additional work completed flexibly.
There is an optional, free SCQF Level 6 qualification that runs alongside the programme.
