What students will learn
Micro Tyco Innovate is a purpose-driven entrepreneurial training programme that fosters creative thinking, resourcefulness and teamwork as well as helping pupils to develop financial literacy, communication, leadership, project management and networking skills.
Students will learn about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will then work in teams to create responsible business ideas that champion the SDGs in their school or local community. They will present their business ideas as a video pitch to their fellow classmates at the end of the two-week programme.
