Education 4 Enterprise

Education 4 Enterprise

Education 4 Enterprise (E4E) is about promoting an approach to learning – one that is real, relevant and gives students responsibility for their learning.

The New Zealand curriculum makes reference to “enterprise” in its vision, principles (in particular, the future focus principle) and values.

Each Board of Trustees is required to develop and implement a Curriculum that is underpinned by the principles and values. The New Zealand Curriculum encourages schools to engage with communities and open pathways for learning.

The New Zealand Council for Educational Research evaluation of the work of the Education 4 Enterprise clusters found that students often considered they worked harder, longer or set higher standards for themselves on their education for enterprise projects when compared with other school work.
