The aim of this session is to guide educators in using role-play and debating activities in their education provision with migrant learners to build basic entrepreneurial skills. The aim of these activities is to show how role-play can be used to build confidence in learners who are only starting out in entrepreneurship and may lack experience. Therefore, through role-play, they can gain experience of presenting to potential investors, pitching an idea, presenting a brand or marketing strategy, dealing with a difficult supplier, or conducting market research, for example. Similarly, through debating, learners can develop their negotiation skills which are a key skill for entrepreneurs to have. As such, in this session, we aim to present these different activities to educators and provide them with support and guidance on how to integrate these activities into their teaching practice.
By complete this session, educators will be able to will apply practical activities that use role-play and debating to build entrepreneurial skills in migrant learners.
