As an entrepreneur and mentor, I am extremely passionate about sharing the many skills, experiences and lessons I have learnt and gained on my entrepreneurial journey. I currently run 2 creative businesses, have written an eBook, have had my products sold out with a major online retailer as well as with boutiques in and around London. I have been featured in press and have had the pleasure of helping others on their start-up journey. I started out on my business journey as a young adult and one thing I often say to myself is “I wish I had been able to start younger! I wish I knew what I know now, earlier on in life!”
This version of the Y-Preneur course has been created for young people aged 11 – 16 who want to make links with education and their future aspirations. Elements of KS3/4 maths, English and IT have been incorporated in to the various exercises and tasks within the course . The purpose of this is to put emphasis on attainment of maths and English language GCSEs, by clearly demonstrating how essential they are in everyday life and in the world of work and business
Here are some of the things that the course encourages and promotes:
- Successful planning skills – with the help of our own planning strategy
- Use of mathematical skills through profit and loss calculation
- Boosting self-confidence through selling and promotion
- Creative and critical thinking
- Problem solving skills
- Boldness and initiative
- Dealing with rejection
Please check the curriculum tab to see course content in more detail. Some of the lessons can also be previewed.
I have been in the business of creative education for over a decade and for the past two years I have been teaching entrepreneurial workshops to children, young people and adults in schools and centres nationwide. We have had great feedback from young people and parents alike – some of which can be viewed here
