In partnership with Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise and Oldham Enterprise Trust – Working in Partnership

Young Enterprise and Oldham Enterprise Trust are working jointly to raise the aspirations, develop the confidence and increase the enterprise and employability skills of students across Oldham’s colleges, primary and secondary schools.

Young Enterprise Company Programme

10 groups of motivated self-selecting students, aged 14-19yrs, put themselves forward to start a business under the Young Enterprise “Company Programme” scheme, a hands on “learning by doing” experience that see them bring a business idea to fruition. Over the course of an academic year, supported by their teachers, volunteer Business Advisers and skills workshop deliverers, students are empowered to bring a product or service to market and trade with the public, confidently pitch their business, manage a business bank account and keep accurate records.

Tenner & Fiver Challenges

Students in selected Oldham secondary and primary schools borrow £10 and £5 for a month, pledging to turn it in to as much money as they can via an entrepreneurial endeavour! As a skills enhancing experience in it’s own right, OET have also used the programme as a springboard for students in to further development programmes.

Oldham students from North Chadderton have been successful in the programmes national “Journey Award” with students Chloe Booth and Nichola Webb both reaching the UK Finals.
