Set up by a team of teachers in 2008, Enabling Enterprise’s mission is to equip young people with the skills, aspirations and experiences they need to succeed in life.
Enabling Enterprise programmes help teachers by integrating skills development into different areas of the curriculum. So, to help history lessons come alive, students create and carry out a campaign on a local issue; in French, they set up a business with an international flavour; in Maths, they design a new sport for the Olympics.
Director Tom Ravenscroft has been recognised with two national teaching awards in 2009 and as one of the ‘top 10’ young social entrepreneurs in the UK in 2010.
Enabling Enterprise is an independent venture supported by The Young Foundation and received investment from our Learning Launchpad fund.
