Tenner is our National Enterprise Challenge, helping students to develop an enterprising mindset and prepare for the world of work.

Students are pledged £10 from the Tenner Bank and use this start-up capital to get their enterprise off the ground. They have one month to set up their business – coming up with an idea of a product to service they can sell. During the challenge, students are encouraged to think ethically and sustainably and have the opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.

In 2017/18 a record number of 27,179 11 to 19 year olds took part in the challenge.
