Helping the next generation of entrepreneurs
In 2015, we announced we’d be supporting local schools through the educational charity, Young Enterprise.
We work with schools across the East Midlands to help fund and deliver financial literacy and employability skills to young people through the charity's flagship 'Company Programme'.
This year-long programme sees students set up and run a real business for a year under the watchful eye of a ‘Business Adviser’. Over the course of our partnership, almost 1,200 students have directly benefitted from our support.
In 2016 we worked with the charity to develop our own ‘Money Academy’ to teach 7 and 8-year-olds all about saving, spending and earning money.
