FSB announces Young Enterprise as its new charity to inspire the next generation

Posted on 29 October 2013

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has chosen Young
Enterprise as its official charity to inspire the next generation of
entrepreneurs and to bridge the skills gap between young people and
business. 

 

Young Enterprise research, launched today, finds nine in 10 (92%)
senior UK managers would like enterprise education to be included in the
national curriculum to help reduce the toll of one million young
unemployed. 

The FSB wants to see more schools involved with local businesses and
focusing on enterprise education for their students. The FSB is working
with Young Enterprise to help them reach their target of being in 50 per
cent of all secondary schools by 2015.

 

Together the FSB and Young Enterprise will help to make young
people more aware of the business world and its valuable contribution to
the economy. Furthermore, the partnership aims to improve the
employability skills of young people, something businesses say is
needed.

 

Throughout its regions, the FSB already has strong partnerships.
The three-year programme will help make this relationship stronger and
open up the Young Enterprise opportunity, across the UK, to inspire the
next generation.
