Student Enterprise Programme

About the Student Enterprise Programme

The Student Enterprise Programme was introduced in the 2002/03 academic year. Now more than 25,000 student businesses are set up annually in schools all around Ireland.
We believe in the importance of educating students at an early age to gain practical experience of how business works. Through the Student Enterprise Programme the students experience, at first hand, the reality of a commercial environment and develop the skills and knowledge of running a business.
The competition starts at county level with representatives from each category – Junior, Intermediate and Senior – going forward to represent Offaly in the National Final.

In order to assist both students and teachers through the programme, the Local Enterprise Office offers every school four workshops in house with a highly experienced and motivated trainer.
