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 16–19 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.
