The Student Enterprise Awards is the flagship enterprise programme at second level with 17,000 students form all areas of the country involved each year. It is a practical programme that offers students the opportunity to take a business from idea stage, through market research to production, selling, record keeping, management and finally writing a comprehensive report on the business. Participation in the Student Enterprise Awards enables students to acquire and develop a wide range of personal and business attributes and skills.
Local Enterprise Offices endeavour to bring business experience and enterprise education into schools to compliment the academic skills of the teaching profession. This year ‘3T Tairgi’ from Colaiste Pobail Osraí in Kilkenny won the Social Media Award in the Intermediate Category at the National Student Enterprise Award Finals - see photo of 2nd year students Thomas Morris, Thomas McGrath and Thomas Mason of 3T Tairgi to the right.
