Entrepreneurship for creative kids
Do you have a creative kid that is full of ideas?
We provide learning in the skills of entrepreneurship by providing a variety of activities that incorporate the foundations of problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, and public speaking. These skills are known as enterprise skills, which build confidence, resilience and the ability to adapt.
Through self-directed learning – under the guidance of an educator – and an opportunity to collaborate and share ideas with others, communication skills are enriched.
A highlight of the term is the pitch fest, where all of the participants have the opportunity to pitch the progress of their idea.
In the continuous journey of learning and developing, where ideas can be boundless, we foster the start-up a cycle of the idea, build, launch, learn and repeat the process.
We inspire students to be problem solvers, think outside the box, connect and communicate through pitching their own ideas, all of which will skyrocket their confidence.
At the end of the term, we hold a pitch fest where the young entrepreneurs can showcase their ideas and be given valuable feedback by mentors from within the business community.
Why is it for you?
Does your child want to start their own business?
Our program contains the following components:
Values associated with entrepreneurship
These foundations will be woven into each week’s lessons, and by the end of the course, your child will have a firm understanding of how these values help to become a successful entrepreneur or creative.
How is the program delivered?
This self-directed learning is monitored by the facilitator, so each student is supported on their entrepreneurial journey.
Topics covered throughout the program
The bulk of this session will allow students to work on their individual projects. Interspersed in the weeks, there will be time for presentation pitch practices and peer feedback.
Since my daughter was introduced to the program, she has absolutely loved it! Her ideas have taken shape and are now put into practice. Sophia loves interacting with the facilitators and workers at the space. The learning environment is safe, educational, and fun.
I can highly recommend this, especially for kids that are looking for something a little different. I saw fabulous changes in my son during the first term he did this subject and he was super keen for the term to start again! The educators/facilitators are phenomenal.
Zig Zag Hub has inspired me, empowered me, and encouraged me. I have learned invaluable business and life skills and Zig Zag has helped me to find my passion and a great business idea. I am extremely grateful to the Zig Zag Hub for creating such an amazing program. I would definitely recommend the program to anyone who is looking to awaken their creativity and learn new skills.
The Zig Zag Hub ran and organised a Year 10 Entrepreneur program for a number of students through out term 1. The real benefits for the students was the improved confidence and sense of self when preparing to pitch their ideas. Students really enjoyed the program and learnt a lot. I would highly recommend this program.
