Proactive teachers are always on the hunt for the best resources to share with their pupils. With a lot of hype surrounding enterprise education but with few tried and tested resources available, it can be a difficult task to find the best. Naturally, we think Clever Tykes produces the best enterprise resources for primary schools! But what is it that makes them good? If you already have the Clever Tykes books and resources or if you're looking for more ways of inspiring and empowering students, what should you be looking out for in other enterprise resources?
Clever Tykes is passionate about enterprise education and the team has carried out extensive research to determine exactly what enterprise in primary schools looks like today. Why is it that even though enterprise is not statutory at the primary or elementary school level, some schools regard it as an incredibly important part of their curriculum? The quality and amount of primary enterprise education delivered varies widely between individual schools and local education authorities (LEAs). A common component of schools with a good standard of enterprise education is a proactive and forward-thinking headteacher, or another teacher who is willing to make a case for enterprise. Teachers have the power to adopt and implement enterprise education if they are passionate about developing the associated skills and attitudes in their pupils. Where there's a will, there's a way. In this article we'll look at what enterprise education looks like in schools as well as explore ideas to better integrate it.

Enterprise education in not on the primary curriculum in the UK. This is why so many primary schools are choosing to adopt after school enterprise clubs to offer the opportunity for some students to learn important skills. After school clubs are a great way of helping children learn in an environment which is supervised but more relaxed than a formal classroom environment and serve a number of purposes for parents and the school. So why should schools adopt an after school enterprise club?
With the increasing emphasis on enterprise education, particularly at a primary level, some teachers’ ability to deliver this content might be called into question. Some argue that entrepreneurship cannot be taught by someone who has no experience of running a business, but is that unfair? Some teachers have never left the education system. The route through school, university, and a PGCE is familiar, with many teachers embarking on their careers in their early 20s. Furthermore, people in mainstream education grow up around teachers and understand the role of a teacher perhaps better than any other profession.
