Peter Jones Enterprise Academy

Information source: Youth Enterprise Live 2012


The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy has a mission to train and motivate young people, unleash entre­pren­eurial talent and create oppor­tun­ities for young people to realise their potential.

Founded by entre­preneur Peter Jones CBE, they are building a nation­wide network of colleges and providers to transform attitudes to entre­pren­eur­ship and enter­prise education.

The academies offer BTECs and Apprenticeships in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship; these are the first qual­i­fic­a­tions of their kind for 1619 year olds in the UK. The qual­i­fic­a­tion was written by Peter Jones CBE in part­ner­ship with Edexcel.

The course structure is business-led and involves part­ner­ships with a range of companies and entre­pren­eurs providing lead­er­ship and hands-on business experience.

The courses prepare students for an entre­pren­eurial career, whether they plan to set up their own business or to work in an entre­pren­eurial workplace, helping an estab­lished business to grow.

The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy is supported by over 100 leading busi­nesses in the UK.
