About the organisation
ISSOS operates, designs and delivers international summer schools for 13 -18-year-olds from over 70 nationalities at St Andrews, Cambridge and Yale Universities. ISSOS exists to create a safe place for students to learn and grow and do this by delivering high-level academic and elective subjects, some of which are unique to ISSOS, and by creating an environment where everyone is welcome. ISSOS is a values-based company and believes that a values-led education is one of the key successes to any great school.
Enterprise activity in schools
ISSOS has an entrepreneurship program that it can take into schools in Scotland and a youth leadership program, both are unique to ISSOS, and are designed as workshops that engage students for up to 3 hours. In addition, ISSOS often speak at schools on entrepreneurship, the entrepreneurial mindset and leadership. Most recently, ISSOS have spoken and run workshops at Kilgraston and Kelvinside Academy, as well as delivering programs to ISSOS students during summer.
ISSOS can design and deliver workshops to secondary school students to encourage enterprise and entrepreneurial thinking as well as promote teamwork and communication, in addition, we offer talks on the entrepreneurial journey, values-led education, and employability workshops and planning for the future talks.
“All the girls loved the workshop and the talk, they found the whole day inspiring and we have asked ISSOS to come back and run another workshop on enterprise”
