Helping the next generation of entrepreneurs
Each year, we work with leading education charity Young Enterprise to deliver financial literacy and employability skills to young people (aged 15 – 19) through their flagship Company Programme. The charity work with around 2,500 schools annually to undertake the year-long programme in which students get the opportunity to set up and run a real business under the watchful eye of a ‘Business Adviser’ volunteer from companies such as The Nottingham.
In the 2015/16 academic year, we volunteered over 200 hours guiding students on their journey through a series of regional, county and area competitions - which culminated in a chance to battle it out in London for the national titles and of course, the coveted ‘Company of The Year’ award.
We are continuing working with them this year and are incredibly proud to be financially supporting ten local schools across Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire to enable them to deliver this Young Enterprise programme.
