About the STAR App

The Young Enterprise STAR App is aimed at helping young people to develop a portfolio of answers for the most commonly asked interview questions. Once you know how to use the STAR App, you can convert any experience of taking part in a Young Enterprise programme or life experience into a story about your skills.

On successful completion of the course, you will be provided with a digital certificate of completion.


Anyone can start this course at any time in their life.

If you have already completed a Young Enterprise programme then you might find it easier to come up with examples of occasions when you demonstrated your skills.
