Business & Enterprise Programme
for students aged 13-17
Business and Enterprise Programme
Our Business and Enterprise programme for students combines inspirational lessons with business-based excursions, where students improve their understanding of Britain's culture and university system whilst learning how to inspire people, take the lead and improve their confidence in public speaking and presentation.
Add some leadership and team-building adventure activities, such as canoeing, climbing and giant swing, where students put into practice what they have been learning. It all adds up to an inspirational cultural experience that helps develop vital personal qualities which enhance their chances of success throughout life.
