Following a successful pilot, Young Enterprise will be joining forces with Founders4Schools (F4S) to deliver enhanced programmes with speakers from the fast growing local businesses.
Founders4Schools, provides a resource that is made available for free to secondary schools across the UK, enables teachers to arrange for leaders of successful, growing businesses to visit their schools and inspire their students. Following three successful pilots run in Leeds and West London, Young Enterprise will be teaming up with F4S, benefiting from their expert speakers at launch events for the Company Programme, and for master classes.
The business founders give highly interactive talks to students in the classroom to students, sharing what they studied when they were in secondary school themselves, what motivated them to set up their businesses and why they would recommend considering a fast-growing innovative business as a leading career choice that can have a positive impact on the world.
The speakers offer young people unique insight into real-life applications from Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects. Young Enterprise and F4S are united in a commitment to link how learning STEM subjects can directly relate to building successful careers in the most innovative businesses that are leading the UK’s economy.
