All students exhibit their ventures at a large venture showcase event and receive feedback from judges, including the opportunity to win cash and prizes and speak to a Shark Tank judge from the show

Through the Shark Tank eSchool program, students will benefit through being able to access learning credits at all three levels of education:

SACE credit

Shark Tank eSchool is mapped to the Business Innovation Year 11 course and Business and Economics for Year 10 students and the 2 Cert IV units equivalent to 10 SACE credits

VET pathway credit

Students can have learning recognised toward 2 units of a Certificate IV in Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation (25% of the Cert IV qualification). The two units of credit from this qualification can also be applied to a range of CertificateIV qualifications and career pathway options at TAFE

University pathway credit

1 undergraduate course credit towards any University of Adelaide Bachelor program

Transferable skills

Enables students to develop transferable skills while acknowledging changing industry/career demands.



All teachers that complete the training also receive one course credit towards a postgraduate degree with The University of Adelaide such as the Master of Education and Entrepreneurship, Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship or Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship.

Teachers also have access to online support.

 The online support component (using the STeS learning portal) has a variety of uses:

  • it provides educator access to lesson plans, online learning activities such as videos and podcasts and concepts requiring further explanation or application

  • it serves as a repository of learning resources for teachers and students to use throughout the program

  • it allows for all assessment pieces to be uploaded in a single location

  •  it provides access to online support by the STeS learning support team to assist with any issues regarding content or technology..
