Young Enterprise Scotland is a registered charity that has been working to inspire and equip young people to learn and succeed through enterprise in Scotland for over 40 years. Our history is proudly linked with Junior Achievement Worldwide and we achieved independent Scottish Charity status in 1991.
Young Enterprise Scotland's well-known Company Programme is the ultimate business and enterprise experience for S5/S6 pupils in schools across Scotland. The pupils set-up and run their own company through the academic year with support from local business volunteers and Young Enterprise Scotland staff. They develop a wide range of skills and receive an invaluable entrepreneurial experience. At the end of the academic year, the young companies compete on a local, regional, national and European level to be crowned Company of the Year.
