Enabling Enterprise is a not-for-profit social enterprise which helps schools to hone their students’ core skills and aspirations by bringing enterprise into the classroom.
Like the year 5 students whose quest to develop the toy of the future ended with a visit to Hamleys presenting to senior staff. Or the year 9 group who launched their own magazine and experienced the world of media.
Our students take the lead on some incredible team projects and are introduced to the world of work through visits to top UK businesses.
Enabling Enterprise has won two national education awards and a social enterprise award. This year we are set to work with over 12,000 students nationwide with targets of 25,000 for next year.

There will be many opportunities to find out about the different activities and challenges for a start-up organisation and you will have the chance to build networks with top businesses which support us, such as PwC, UBS and Freshfields.
