During Wandsworth Schools’ Week we will be delivering a series of workshops, assemblies and talks by young and established entrepreneurs in schools across the borough*. These events are to help develop enterprise and work-related learning for pupils in Year 7 to Year 13.
This assembly by Peter Jones Foundation, designed for delivery to the whole school/year groups, will look at the opportunity for young people to blaze their own trail in the business world. There will be a focus on the enterprise skills needed for students, with examples from the start-up world of how they can develop their experiences now. Peter Jones Foundation will also explore intrapreneurship, where students can innovate within big organisations, and the impact this can have.
The Peter Jones Foundation believes that everyone deserves a brighter future. Its primary aim is to drive a society-wide revolution that encourages self-belief in individuals so that they can think differently and creatively about their next steps, and ultimately to inspire the nation to make enterprising decisions about its future.
*These assemblies are only available to Wandsworth schools signed up for the Tycoon Enterprise competition. Booking is on a first come, first serve basis. Times can be amended slightly to accommodate your schedule.
Places are limited to one booking per school.
Alternative slot available: Monday 25 March, 9.30–10am
Schools last year said:
“It was one of the best workshops we’ve ever had at the academy – Bill from the Peter Jones Foundation was brilliantly engaging. We are really keen to try to sustain a relationship with the Peter Jones Foundation going forward, such was the positive impact Bill made”. – Sean Parsons, Head teacher, Southfields Academy
“During Enterprise week we had Olly Carr from the Peter Jones network and a local business created by young entrepreneurs (Wash Doctors) in to speak to the whole of Year 9 about becoming an entrepreneur. Both talks were extremely inspiring, informative and engaging for our students and there was an enthusiastic Q&A at the end. Students at Chestnut Grove were keen to find out more and enjoyed the experience of hearing both talks.” – Noga Verber, Assistant Headteacher, Chestnut Grove Academy
