FSB announces Young Enterprise as its new charity to inspire the next generation
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has chosen Young Enterprise as its official charity to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and to bridge the skills gap between young people and business.
Young Enterprise research, launched today, finds nine in 10 (92%) senior UK managers would like enterprise education to be included in the national curriculum to help reduce the toll of one million young unemployed.
The FSB wants to see more schools involved with local businesses and focusing on enterprise education for their students. The FSB is working with Young Enterprise to help them reach their target of being in 50 per cent of all secondary schools by 2015.
Together the FSB and Young Enterprise will help to make young people more aware of the business world and its valuable contribution to the economy. Furthermore, the partnership aims to improve the employability skills of young people, something businesses say is needed.
