Student Enterprise Programme


The Student Enterprise Programme is the flagship enterprise programme at Second Level with 22,000 students from all areas of the country involved each year. This practical programme 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 Programme enables students acquire and develop a wide range of personal and business attributes and skills.

Local Enterprise Offices endeavour to bring the ‘business experience’ developed with Second Level Support Service (SLSS) of the Department of Education & Science into schools to compliment the academic skills of the teaching profession. A range of resource materials to facilitate and enhance enterprise education have been developed. Visit:
