Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE)

The Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) is designed to allow students to earn credits by exam.

The examinations address the skills and knowledge acquired by students under a flexible and articulated system where subjects are organized into one-unit or two-unit courses. Each unit contains three modules. Additional information about CAPE can be found at https://www.cxc.org/examinations/cape/

Entrepreneurship

Overview

Entrepreneurship seeks to empower students by providing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to achieve entrepreneurial success in a variety of settings. It places emphasis on the individual’s acumen to realise opportunity, assess risk, and apply the skills necessary to transform innovative ideas into viable, sustainable ventures. The CAPE Entrepreneurship syllabus provides students with the mindset that supports creativity and innovation needed to transform ideas into ventures that create value and wealth. The syllabus seeks to fill that void in the continuum from idea generation to venture creation. Reference: https://www.cxc.org/subject/entrepreneurship-cape/
