Calling All Budding Entrepreneurs

Wednesday 21st April 2010

The National Enterprise Academy (NEA) is a unique accredited academy giving young people aged 16-19 the skills and mindset needed to succeed in setting up their own businesses or to shine in an established business.  Founded by Peter Jones CBE from Dragons Den, the NEA has academies in Buckinghamshire, Manchester and Sheffield offering full-time education programmes for a BTEC Enterprise and Entrepreneurship qualification at Level 2 (equivalent to 4 GCSEs) and Level 3 (equivalent to 2 A Levels).  Applicationsfor courses starting in September 2010 from those aged 16 to 19 are now being invited.

The NEA uses a new approach to teaching by combining "learning by doing" with classroom learning. Students work on real life business challenges and benefit from coaching from real business owners.  Both courses include a unique personal and professional development programme designed to help guide and support students career aspirations.  The unique mix of the practical and classroom learning ensures that essential theory is delivered in a practical, energetic way that involves real, live challenges, local and national competitions, social enterprise opportunities, these just list a few of the different learning methods the NEA use to engage, motivate and challenge students.

If any of your pupils are budding entrepreneurs, find out more about the National Enterprise Academy by visiting their website.
