Young Enterprise has recently launched a charter which calls on business, government and educators to help every young person succeed through a commitment to increasing enterprise education, employer engagement and volunteering time.
UK Chief Executive, John May, explains the reason for the introduction of the Charter:
“I am sure you will have noticed that business leaders, politicians and educators are increasingly discussing how ill-equipped young people are when they enter the workplace. As you know, we believe enterprise education is part of the solution to rectify this situation but to be truly effective, we need teachers, employers, employees, and young people, all to come together to share their skills. Together we can inspire the future business leaders, entrepreneurs and enterprising employees of tomorrow who will compete globally and drive the UK’s economic growth”.
