Peter Jones CBE congratulates students on a wonderful year studying enterprise and entrepreneurship

Leicester College has places left on its 1 Year Fast Track Enterprise Course

Leicester College is still accepting applications to its Peter Jones Enterprise Academy – so get in touch if you want to study for one year and get the equivalent of two A Levels whilst setting up your business – we will equip you with all the necessary skills.

The Academy is a great place for inspirational talks, sharing knowledge and ideas generation. This is a result of excellent teaching and the interaction you will have with different businesses. Guest speakers and business mentors will be visiting the Academy throughout the year to talk to you about the many different aspects of business and to provide mentoring support.

The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy delivers specialist courses in enterprise and entrepreneurship. Operating in colleges across the country, the academy takes a very practical, hands-on approach to preparing students for success in the working world. We concentrate on giving young people the right knowledge and skills to forge a career path of their choice – whether that means setting up a business, working for a top company or going on to higher education.

The Academy at Leicester College is proud of the achievements of its learners. Recently Yolanda Dixon was shortlisted for National Entrepreneur of the Year with her business idea ‘Ebony Cosmetics’ which specialises in producing foundation for darker skinned women. She says: “The course is amazing, it has given me so many opportunities that I would never have had otherwise. The course is practical as well as theory-based and I really like that it teaches you through practical experience.”

Julie Newitt, Programme Lead said “We still have a few remaining places at the Academy and we are all very happy to see that the Academy is growing in size and reputation.  Also, for the last three years now we’ve had learners make it through to the National Entrepreneur of the Year competition and we really hope to continue that tradition with our new learners”.
