Classroom to Boardroom
Classroom to Boardroom is our premier programme. Over the course of a week students adopt the life of a business executive.
The participants are presented with a real life business challenge, work on finding a solution and then present their findings to senior executives of the supporting organisation.
Entrepreneur in You
The Entrepreneur in You programme gives the students an insight into how business ideas are generated, brand building, sales and marketing techniques and product development.
The day ends with a trading session, where students pitch their business ideas to outside buyers.

We create bespoke employability and career programmes for educators who are seeking new and innovative ways to help young people prepare for the changing world of work.
These have included:
- Learning about building a personal brand.
- Innovative alternative approaches to work experience.
- Bringing businesses into schools to talk about the skills they are looking for and potential career options.
