Nurturing the entrepreneurial skills of students

by | Jul 9, 2018

The Mitchell Institute at Victoria University has been collaborating with about 20 secondary schools in New South Wales and Victoria on a program that focusses on entrepreneurial learning.

Paradigm Shifters, based on the work of international education expert Yong Zhao, encourages students to take new approaches to issues in their community they think need fixing.

This has seen the students create an array of enterprises, including a garden to grow fresh produce for the local community, an online market place to showcase student artwork, IT sessions for seniors, and a student-led redesign of one high school’s work experience program.

Dr Bronwyn Hinz, an Education Policy Researcher at the Mitchell Institute at Victoria University joins Rooty Hill high school student, Lara Ferri, to discuss the program.
