The Junior Entrepreneur Programme (JEP) is a 10 - 16 week entrepreneurial education programme for primary school pupils. This innovative programme opens the minds of the pupils to the joy of entrepreneurship at a time in their lives when they are full of imagination and open to new possibilities. The programme helps participating pupils to develop a number of skills including literacy, writing, presentation, drawing, technology, research skills, numeracy, financial, consumer awareness, storytelling, listening skills, creative thinking, problem solving, team building and collaboration skills.

The programme has a significant personal development impact on participating pupils, building confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem, and an appreciation of individual skills and talents.

A few weeks ago the JEP was launched in Mr. Moloney’s 6th class. Firstly, they discussed what an entrepreneur was, and listed what characteristics and skills would be necessary to be a successful entrepreneur. The pupils then broke into 4 groups and listed and discussed ideas for a class project.  Each group presented their  project to the 'Dragons' who put them through their paces and after some deliberation chose the project which they felt had the most potential for the whole class to get involved in.

The winning project:-  'Let's Make & Bake' Cookbook - The pupils have been very busy requesting and receiving recipes from parents, staff, family friends and various celebrities over the past few weeks. 

This will definitely be a ‘Must Have’ cookbook!
