Why Business?

Having your own business means you can work for yourself and enjoy the pride and enjoyment of owning your own business and having people work for you! Start a business in your local area, have time and flexibility for family and as you work hard, you only reap the benefits. It's a great way of life and opportunity for success.

Entrepreneurship Curriculum

SEDI teaches students the fundamentals of entrepreneurship development through a mandatory ‘Entrepreneur Development’ module – introducing the concepts of development of business plan, communication, ethical practices and financial management whilst supporting students with licenses and registrations, linkages to financial institutes and mentoring during establishment of their enterprise.
