The Cork Schools Enterprise Programme is an initiative that gives second level students the opportunity to set up and run their own business. Students are exposed to all the realities and challenges faced by entrepreneurs today. Working in teams, they are involved in every stage of the business development from market research and production to sales and marketing. The programme was set up in 2004 and is a joint venture of Cork City, South, North and West Cork Enterprise Boards. Creating an enterprise culture in Cork schools is a key objective of the four Enterprise Boards. It is hoped that through the Cork Schools Enterprise Programme many of the participating students will eventually opt for self-employment as a career choice. The West Cork Enterprise Board participates in the Senior Category of the Programme and this Category is for fourth year secondary school students. If a school does not have a fourth year, fifth years can also partake in the Programme.
up to 350 West Cork students from 8 West Cork schools are participating in the 2012/2013 programme
