WHAT is JEP?

Real life learning for children

Junior Entrepreneur Programme (JEP) has given more than 50,000 primary school pupils on the island of Ireland the opportunity to experience practical, real-life business learning as part of their formative education.Nurtures

Creativity, independence and problem solving

Running over a 12 to 16 week period during the school year, JEP nurtures creativity, independence and problem-solving among pupils of all abilities, with every aspect of the Programme seamlessly blending into the primary school curriculum.

Start a real business in the classroom

Under their teacher’s guidance, and with the inspiration of local entrepreneurs, children will discover their strengths as individuals and as part of a team. Together, they’ll choose, invest in and produce their own product or service from scratch, all the way to making it available for sale at a school-hosted JEP Showcase Day – and enjoying the profits at the end.

Participate in JEP’s All Ireland Showcase Day 2019

Classes who participate in JEP will get a chance to showcase their classroom business at the spectacular JEP All Ireland Showcase Day at RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin on May 20th 2019.

Supporting our teachers

Teachers are provided with a classroom kit which gives them everything they need to deliver the programme. Every chapter and the pupil’s workbook reinforces the primary school curriculum. There’s live online help and telephone support line for teachers as well as regular webinars. Teachers decide whether JEP is appropriate for their classes.

Real Business

Eleven and twelve year old children on JEP create REAL businesses and make real sales. They invest in their businesses and reap the profits – €140,000 in 2018.

50,000 ENTREPRENEURS

Since 2010, over 50,000 children have created their own classroom businesses with JEP – all over the island of Ireland and more recently in London, England.

INSPIRING CONFIDENCE

A JEP survey indicated that teachers saw improved confidence, team building, communications and independence in children who participated.
