Enterprising Skills Education

The Academy for Enterprising Girls is a free innovative entrepreneurship program, co-funded by the Australian Government, designed to cultivate young women’s skills in design thinking, coding and business skills.

This will be delivered via a self-paced online learning program, featuring ten modules. There will also be 50 in-person workshops in schools and communities, held in locations across Australia.

The platform is not designed to replace any current curriculum but will include resources and tools for teachers to augment and support the teaching of the current curriculum. The program is designed to build entrepreneurship/innovation initiatives to support and aims to help teachers without adding to their workload.

The Academy is a platform accessible to ALL young Australian women with engaging content aimed at developing an entrepreneurial mindset. The digital platform will combine newly created materials supplemented with existing industry resources all in one easy location.

We are calling on educators in Australia, to encourage the girls they know aged 10-18, who have a passion for problem solving and the ability to innovate, to register for the Academy for Enterprising Girls. This will be another way you can influence the development of Australia’s future female workforce.
