The Unloc Enterprise Academy is a programme designed to inspire motivate and develop the entrepreneurial mindsets of young people.
Do you know how we do this?
The Enterprise Academy ethos is to provide a fun, engaging and interactive sessions that inform students of the skills needed in enterprise. We offer in-depth learning 12 week programmes, we stress the importance of collaborative learning and getting up on your feet instead of staring at the dreaded powerpoint presentation and writing for two hours straight!
To provide some context to this in, here’s an example: In week 7 we focus on finance and instead of drowning in cash flow forecasts and budget sheets, we play “Who wants to be a finance guru?” This involves students getting into teams, having their own buzzers and being the first to buzz in and solve the cash flow questions. This session is then reinforced by having a local accountancy firm coming in and explaining how “cash is king” (again, another interactive and engaging session).
Why should I support this?
The Unloc Enterprise Academy helps students who may have a business concept see that through to fruition with these engaging activities. This has led to lots of businesses being created through our programmes and having over 20 ambassadors of this programme who have been through the course.
The reason why I support the Unloc Enterprise Academy is that I want these future entrepreneurs to have the chance to make a difference and have a platform to promote themselves and that is why this programme is making a difference – Ryan Waters, Head of Unloc Enterprise Academy.
