WE OFFER 'REAL LIFE' BUSINESS EDUCATION FOR 12 - 16 YEAR OLDS

The world is changing. Rapidly.  Knowing about business is an increasingly important life skill.  

 

The 'Young Entrepreneurs Academy' was lovingly created to provide real life business education for 12-16 year olds.  Our flagship learning programme is 'Basics of Business: 20 Quick Hits' which launches in March 2023 and contains incredible video led insight into business.  Successful students will be awarded a Diploma on completion of their coursework and even have the chance to win a £2,000 investment in our very own Dragon's Den towards the end of 2023

Targeting respectful 12-16 year old's, our online content tackles a broad range of relevant topics and themes with a heavy focus on real life practice as opposed to 'textbook' theory.  Alongside our incredible 'Basics of Business: 20 Quick Hits' course (delivered in twenty 15-minute online episodes), our successful students will prepare, refine and submit their own business plans taking inspiration from some of the UK's leading young entrepreneurs.

ABOUT US

A BIT MORE ABOUT US

Working with businesses, schools, charities, sports clubs and religious organisations across the UK, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy aims to provide real-life business courses and content to over 10,000 12-16 year olds each year.

 

Young Entrepreneurs should apply online and, if offered a place, receive it free of charge thanks to the support of our corporate partners. We provide equal opportunities across society and encourage those from less privileged backgrounds to apply.  We positively discriminate for neuro-diversity recognising the incredible insights that such students bring.

Our 'Young Board' - comprising some of our very best current and former Academy students - provides vital guidance to the Executive Team who are responsible for delivering the best possible experience to the Young Entrepreneurs.  We aim to create relevant and inspirational content and are committed to involving some of the best young entrepreneurial talent in the UK.  

  Our Dragon's Den competition culminates with an investment of £2,000 into the business of a single Young Entrepreneur.  Five runners-up receive investment of £500 each.  Our Idea StationTM,  based at Francis Holland School, enables students to brainstorm ideas with mentors and peers.
