Apprentice Finalist Supports Enterprise in Tameside.
Fri, 18 June 2010
Claire Young, the infamous ‘Rottweiller’ form the hit TV series the Apprentice, recently supported an event hosted by The North-East Manchester Enterprise Learning Partnership at Stalybridge FC.
The launch of the new “Enterprise Learning Journey” resource saw Claire playing a fantastic role model to future entrepreneurs planning their university and business careers. Claire delivered a motivational speech to students in primary, secondary and further education, speaking to them one-on-one about her experiences in the business world.
The North-East Manchester Enterprise Learning Partnership is a group of teachers and other practitioners working together to raise awareness of the value of Enterprise education. The partnership is funded by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust and have produced a free resource which can be used as a self-assessment and planning tool in any educational setting.
“In producing this resource we have identified Enterprise skills and recognised that learning about Enterprise is a journey which begins in the early-stages of education and continues throughout our lives.” says Colin Bell, Hub Co-ordinator at Tameside College.
On the day, there was the chance to see practical examples of enterprise education from local primary, secondary and college teachers and students.
Overall this was a great day with many positive comments about the event, the resources and the speaker!
