News: Thank you!

Posted on: June 29th, 2011

On 28th June, hundreds of delegates from across the UK descended on Magna, Rotherham to take part in our national conference.  We had an absolutely fantastic day and would like to thank everyone who travelled from far and wide to come and see us. 

Rotherham schools and colleges did the town proud with their fantastic displays and stalls in the enterprise learning market and we’d like to extend this thanks to our colleagues from Hull Ready and Hull schools who also came along to show how what we do can work anywhere!

We would like to thank all of our guests who took part in our panel discussion; Karen Borthwick (Assistant Head of School Effectiveness, RMBC), Lee Bestall (Inspired Gardens), Jackie Frost (Enterprise Projects Manager, RMBC), Carl Hopkins, David Butler (ex HMI and lead on enterprise) and Alex Wirth (Y6 Teacher, Thorpe Hesley Juniors).

A very special thank you goes out to Y6 students and Miss Hughf from Monkwood Primary, Rawmarsh who led a fantastic enterprising activity in the afternoon – well done!

And last but certainly not least, we had some amazing speakers – Carl Hopkins – our Founding Patron of the national part of the programme Are You Ready? and Channel 4 Secret Millionaire, Phil Beadle – from Channel 4’s The Unteachable’s and also a winner of UK Secondary Teacher of the Year and Sabirul Islam – a teen entrepreneur and creator of the Teen-trepreneur board game.

So…if you’re already wondering what’s next, circle the 4th October in your diary and look out for more information about our first Are You Ready? training event here in Rotherham with our Founding Patron, Carl Hopkins.  See www.areyouready.or.uk for more information or contact one of the team.
