SET president Pakorn Peetathawatchai said this week the young generation, properly trained, could help “create growth and stability in the economy, society and environment”, in keeping with the exchange’s ambition to “Make the Capital Market ‘Work’ for Everyone”.
“This project is a part of the role-expanding strategy of the SET’s Social Impact Platform, aiming to increase allies and operating areas through the education and social sectors nationwide,” he said.
“We aim to spread and inspire the idea of social enterprise to fulfil the government’s policy that focuses on sustainable development of society, the environment and a grass-roots economy in collaboration with social enterprises.”
Participating universities are Kasetsart, Thammasat (Puey Ungphakorn School of Development Studies), Mae Fah Luang, Ubon Ratchathani, and Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna.
“The SET has had SE101 short courses available since August for entrepreneurs the and general public and these continue into November,” Pakorn said.
The SET is providing the schools with knowledge and curriculum content free of charge, including advice and training for teachers at all levels.
“We also arrange study trips and specialised courses to help teachers design their own curriculum for people of different backgrounds,” Pakorn said.
