BRAC Micro-Enterprise Tracking Form

The BRAC Micro-Enterprise Tracking Form is an Excel spreadsheet to be utilized by teachers in tracking their students progress in completion of the required modules for each level of the BRAC Micro-Enterprise Credential. Once a student has earned a credential the tracking form will create a quote for the purchasing of that credential. It is recommended that teachers purchase credentials at the end of semester, but they may be purchased at any time throughout the year. The tracking form must be uploaded during the purchase process for the credential certificate. It must be correct at the time of upload with correct spelling of names to insure certificates are received in a timely manner.

Self-Assessment Presentation Resources

For the Complementary and Regional Credentials, students must complete a Self-Assessment Presentation. This presentation must be made to a non-familiar adult and may not be made to a teacher or school employee. The presentation must be a minimum of 10 minutes.

It is recommended that you use the Nepris platform to schedule virtual mentors to assist with this process. You also have the option to use individuals from your community as mentors. It is recommended that you group students in groups with a minimum of 3 students when scheduling Nepris mentors. This will allow for better utilization of the mentors and teachers time in scheduling.
