Skills For The Future entrant – Young Enterprise

A national charity that helps young people develop their business, financial and entrepreneurial skills has entered the Skills For The Future category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.

Young Enterprise works directly with young people, teachers, parents, businesses and influencers to offer financial and enterprise education.

It works with around 57% of secondary schools in the 30% most deprived areas of England and Wales and has a strong presence in Staffordshire.

Teresa Fisher, Young Enterprise Educational Partnership Manager for Staffordshire, said: “We believe that the potential of the UK’s young people is unlimited and an academic education on its own is not enough.

“As a national charity very active in Staffordshire we motivate young people to succeed in the changing world of work by equipping them with the work skills, knowledge and confidence they need.”

Young Enterprise’s financial education is a planned programme of study that equips young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their money.  Its enterprise education provides young people with the skills, competencies and mindset to make the most of everyday opportunities and challenges.

Teresa added: “Through our hands-on employability, enterprise and financial education programmes, resources and teacher training we aim to reduce youth unemployment, help young people realise their potential beyond education and empower a generation to learn, to work and to live.”
