Young Enterprise Digital Badge Programme

Inspired by the BBC ‘The Apprentice’ TV programme, our Young Enterprise programme tasks children and young people with creating a real life product or service – which other children and young people can benefit from.

As part of the process the young entrepreneurs will develop and create a social product, seek local investment for their product and then finally take the product to market. All profits are donated to a local charity or good cause of the young entrepreneur teams choice.

This 12-20 hour digital badge programme is delivered by our experienced and dynamic Digital Badge IT programme leaders or can be used by schools to deliver their own young enterprise programme.
