Inspire young people about their education and their future!

This internationally acknowledged education programme is transforming the aspirations and skills of children and young people.

Working with schools and colleges in Rotherham and across the UK, enterprise is being harnessed as a legitimate vehicle for learning and helping young people develop the skills and qualities they need to face the future with confidence.

Rotherham Ready, and the national social enterprise Ready Unlimited, are committed to creating education that is fit for the 21st Century.

Latest News: The STEM challenge: SAFE LIVING: ‘Protecting People, Places, Animals/Insects or the Environment’

Young people from Rotherham’s Infants and Juniors to Secondary and FE are busy working on the Rotherham Ready STEM Challenge (Science, technology, engineering and maths).
STEM related industries account for 58% of all new jobs and 72% of all UK businesses rely on people with STEM skills. This means that as well as being important for the way we live, STEM subjects are also creating new and exciting jobs and careers. This is particularly apparent in Rotherham and South Yorkshire and representatives from South Yorkshire’s STEM businesses are working with us to engage young people with STEM. Our inspiring STEM mentors are Airmaster, Santander, Parkgate Shopping, Whistle Stop Sweet Shop, Visualisedit and Infinity Digital.
This project will connect the young people with their STEM mentor. They will work together on the challenge to design a product or service within the important theme of safe living. We are pleased to be working with Rotherham College again who are hosting and judging the entries. From what we’ve heard already from participants, they are going to have some very impressive ideas to judge. Good luck to everyone involved and we look forward to hearing your presentations in November.

Our very own enterprise theme tune!

A HUGE thanks goes out to the very enterprising staff and children at Thurcroft Infant School who have created and produced the very first enterprise theme tune to the sounds of ‘Wheels on the Bus’. Staff and children at the school work with the Foundation Enterprise Characters to introduce skills at a basic level and raise aspirations from Foundation to Year 2.

Watch the video above to see why enterprise is essential in every school and college around the world.
