News: The Power of Partnerships

Posted on: May 8th, 2012

Hosted by the nationally acclaimed enterprise education programme – ‘Are You Ready?’

Tuesday 10th July 2012

9.45 – 2pm

Magna Science & Adventure Centre, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

Young people and the communities in which they live face unprecedented challenge in coping with the shift from an age of industry to an age of knowledge, creativity and enterprise. Globalisation, changes in technology and employment and the recent recession are having a profound impact on how we work and live.

At ‘Are You Ready?’ we believe that enterprise is a critical part of 21st century learning. Teachers, businesses, parents and the wider community have significant skills and expertise which can contribute to transforming the future of education for young people and strengthening our communities.

‘Are You Ready?’ have been working with NESTA (National Endowment of Science Technology and Arts) since 2011 to explore the power of partnerships in developing enterprise and will share this learning at this national conference.

The day will comprise of;

  • Inspiration from education and industry
  • Examples of partnership best practice in enterprise learning
  • Discussion with peers and colleagues
  • Opportunities to ask questions
  • A 4-19 young person-led enterprise learning market

Places are charged at £120 per delegate.
