Volunteers

They share a desire to pass their business experience to next generation.

Our volunteers have experience which cuts across every sector of the economy. They are in employment, entrepreneurs, stay at home parents, on a career break or retired. They have one thing in common. A desire to pass on their skills and experience of business to inspire the next generation.

Teachers

Thousands of dedicated teachers in schools, colleges and universities

Research shows enterprise education inspires young people to become more employable - and better at core subjects. As a result, teachers are getting aboard.

In the process they acquire skills a purely academic curriculum could not offer.
