Welcome to our November Newsletter – our last one for the year! In this edition, we shine a light on the entrepreneurial mindset! We share some insight into the value of learning by ‘doing’ and why this is so important for our budding young learners to thrive. We also share some news on the winners from this year’s National Teaching Awards, inspire with some tips and tools for your classroom, and highlight some important upcoming events to diarise before the end of the year.


Our theme for November has been all about entrepreneurship and earlier in the month we celebrated Global Entrepreneurship Week! From 14 to 20 November, we joined people from various countries worldwide to create solutions for worldwide economic growth. We have a strong focus on entrepreneurship in our curriculum and we have a number of organisations that are supporting entrepreneurship in schools. We even held a Town Hall on TeacherConnectcommunity on 17 November about this and we hosted an EdEco event on Friday 18 November that focused on entrepreneurial mindsets.

    By now, you will also know that the DBE-E³ team is passionate about supporting and strengthening the practise of entrepreneurial mindsets in schools and doing that through project-based learning. Our online ‘Introduction to Project-Based Learning’ training has been designed to support teachers with the tools to bring out this way of thinking in learners. PLUS, teachers can also earn 10 SACE points (type 3) after completing the course! Want to know more? You can enrol here.

    Schools close in the next few weeks and we would like to take this opportunity to wish all teachers a wonderful holiday!


All the work streams in the DBE-E³ team have been active over the past month and we are
very pleased to share our progress with you.
