Young Enterprise
Introducing primary school students to business

CET is delighted to announce its partnership with Young Enterprise to launch their new and innovative Our Business programme for primary school students.  CET's grant of £50,000 will fund the first 50 school projects across England and Wales in the 2014-15 academic year and will benefit an expected 1,500 young students.

Our Business introduces 8 to 10 year olds to business and enterprise, engaging them in the practice of commerce and helping them to appreciate the important role that commerce plays in their lives and their community.  The activity, which takes place over half a term, gives children the opportunity to develop fundamental life-enhancing skills through the fun and exciting experience of creating and running a business. 

As part of its commitment, CET is also supporting the development of a robust evaluation framework to assess the progress and impact of the initial roll out and to inform the expansion of the Our Business programme in 2015-16 and beyond.Click here for more
