As part of a pilot program, AgriFutures Australia and startup.business will select seven schools across Australia to deliver the AgriFutures™ startup.business Pilot Program. The exciting program will take secondary students in Year 9 and Year 10 on an immersive journey into the entrepreneurial startup scene to help solve the problems facing agriculture in Australia. The value of this program is $7,000 per school.
Startup.business will work closely with schools and teachers to deliver this program of learning and engaged activities. The program has been developed with the knowledge that students seek to be inspired and challenged by others, want to understand how to start and manage a business, and what it could mean for their future careers. The program does not require a teacher qualified in business – our program provides training to teachers to support a cohort of students on their entrepreneurial journey.
Successful applicants (ie schools/teachers) will be required to deliver the program in Term 2 and Term 3 in 2018. Training and support is provided for the successful schools to deliver the program, including a detailed briefing workshop prior to commencement, as well as specific lesson plans and resources to aid teachers to successfully deliver the program.
