Certiport Entrepreneurship Small Business Credential for Ohio Schools & Out-of-School Programs
As Ohio shifts to the new, long term graduation requirements, many students will need to demonstrate career readiness by earning Industry Recognized Credentials, such as the Entrepreneurship Small Business (ESB) certification which counts as three of twelve points students can earn within the business and hospitality career pathways. Ohio Afterschool Network (OAN) and EnvisionEdPlus have teamed up with business and nonprofits to identify free or reasonably priced entrepreneurship curricula that can be used in schools, afterschool programs and summer learning to prepare students to earn their ESB certification. Each course or program offers hands on, fun ways to engage students in building entrepreneurial skills and mindsets. Each curriculum can be offered in person, virtually or in a blended model.
