Determined to Succeed is fundamental in sparking enterprising ambition in our young people. For Scotland to realise its potential, we need a population ready and able to meet the challenges of a global 21st century.
We need youngsters who are confident, flexible, prepared to take calculated risks, have a “can do, will do” attitude, and who want to make their ideas happen.
We need young people who are Determined to Succeed.
“Determined to Succeed is an incredible initiative. To have so many people across the country working to support enterprise in learning on a diverse range of different programmes is amazing, it really is the future of the country, and there is no question. I have already seen so much innovation, creativity and self-confidence in the pupils I have met; they are so enthusiastic and engaged with what is going on. In another five years it's mind blowing to think where Scotland will be when these young people have grown up and are making their mark on society, it’s quite incredible.”
