A Model Learning Environment
The Practice Enterprise provides an ideal learning environment, where participants can work at their own pace and progress at the rate they are capable of. Learning in a simulated situation gives participants the opportunity to experience real events while allowing them to make mistakes and to learn from these mistakes without prejudice. The Practice Enterprise empowers participants and gives access to training that may not be available via conventional methods. The concept enhances the quality of life for disabled and disadvantaged groups by affording them an opportunity for real-world skills acquisition and increased access to the labour market through the Practice Enterprise network of mentor companies and real-world business partners. There is also the possibility of distance learning, opening up avenues for education not available in conventional learning environments.
