Transition Year students have the opportunity to study entrepreneurship and take part in both the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) and the Student Enterprise programmes.

The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) Programme is a world recognised, youth entrepreneurship education and development programme. It is provided by Foróige in Ireland and is affiliated to NFTE International.

First Year students have also taken part in the NFTE programme.

The Student Enterprise Programme allows students to become entrepreneurs and try their hand at running a business while still in school.

In both programmes, students enter competitions starting and local and going up to international level.

In the past Nano Nagle College, as North Presentation Secondary School, has enjoyed success in both programmes. In 2022 4 North Presentation students won a Gold Medal for Cork and Ireland in Olten, Switzerland at the YouthStart European Entrepreneurship Awards for their social enterprise ‘Know Your Buttons’.

As Nano Nagle College we look forward to continuing with this success.
