A new yearly planner for schools has been launched highlighting educational, cultural and social enterprise events so that teachers can link lessons to what is happening at home and abroad.
The Day by Day Enterprise Matters yearly planner, launched by Learning and Teaching Scotland, flags up events such as Clean Up the World Weekend (September 14-16), British Food Fortnight (September 22-October 7) and International Children's Day of Broadcasting (December 11) to allow teachers to link more easily what is going on in class to national and international events.
The planner also features web links to education support materials for each event to help teachers with their lesson plans.
Eric Burton, enterprise development officer, said: "This is an invaluable resource for teachers which allows them to see, at a glance, areas where they can develop their own initiatives. It highlights national and international events and also offers links to support materials they can use."
The planner has been developed by LTS, in partnership with Determined to Succeed, and has been sent to all schools in Scotland.
