Our programme has been designed for students who may wish to establish their own businesses upon leaving employment, education or training or those who may become sole traders based around a skill such as plumbing, joinery or gardening.
Whilst working with us, students will complete a range of real-life business challenges set by leading UK employers including Ryman, Merlin Entertainment, Screwfix and Grenade. Our challenges cover all aspects of launching a business, from producing a business card, networking, product development, costing, market research, branding and promotion. Students will also develop key transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, problem solving and digital skills.
Working closely with OCR, we have mapped our programme of activities against the OCR Cambridge National in Enterprise and Marketing, meaning that students can work towards an additional qualification whilst completing the challenges set with the provision.
