Helping the next generation of entrepreneurs
In 2015, we announced we’d be supporting local schools through the educational charity, Young Enterprise, to deliver financial literacy and employability skills to young people through the charity's flagship 'Company Programme'.
The charity works with 2,500 schools annually to deliver the year-long programme where students set up and run a real business for a year. We now work with more than twenty schools annually to help fund this programme under the watchful eye of a 'Business Adviser' from The Nottingham.
In 2015/16 we volunteered over 200 hours to support the programme and in 2016/17 we will be working with 20 schools across Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, increasing our support to around 300 hours.
