Improving the life chances of our learners is at the heart of all the work we do at Beacon Hill Academy. Our Enterprise Education initiative plays a major role in this.
Enterprise Education provides learners with the skills to be successful. These skills are essential for learners who wish to become the next generation of entrepreneurs and are also highly sought after by employers across all sectors of the economy. The development of Enterprise skills continues throughout each learner’s time at Beacon Hill Academy, giving them better prospects for the future, whatever careers they choose to follow.
In addition, Enterprise Education helps learners to make even more progress when they move on to Key Stage 4.
Learners develop these Enterprise skills across the whole curriculum, in all subject areas, as part of their normal lessons. Many learners decide to develop themselves further by joining our 'Enterprise Team'. This is a group of learners who work together on various projects and competitions to develop their own entrepreneurial skills and to advise us on how to build enterprise into our curriculum.
As subdivisions of our main Enterprise Team, we also support the following learner-led initiatives:
