Enterprise in Education

Enterprise in education is about taking an enterprising approach to teaching and learning.


Enterprise encourages our pupils to learn and develop in a way that meets their needs and develops skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.


By helping our pupils to prepare for the world of work, including self-employment, they are better equipped them to make an effective transition from education.


Examples of enterprise activities on offer at Portobello High School include:

  • Annual Careers Convention held in February to coincide with pupils making course choices for entry to S3, S5 and S6.
  • Business Education Christmas Party organised by S3 Business Management pupils for S1 pupils.
  • S3 Business Management pupils participation in Stock market Challenge
  • Work Experience for S4.
  • Reportobello-school magazine written, published and marketed by pupils.
  • Suspended timetable.
  • Charity work.
