The National Enterprise Challenge
As the UK’s largest school’s enterprise and employability competition we have helped to inspire more than 250,000 students since launching in 2013!
High Profile Support
The National Enterprise Challenge is part of the Inspirational Learning Group, whose aim is to provide innovative and enterprising off-timetable events for schools, colleges and universities; engaging, inspiring and motivating students to be the best they can be.
Our challenges have received high-profile support from Theo Paphitis and Lord Sugar, alongside major national businesses including Air Products, Grenade, , University Campus of Football Business (UCFB), Screwfix, NatWest Bank, Staffordshire University, Alton Towers, OCR, Gandys and TG Escapes.
First Class Facilitation
The full day challenge is scheduled on a date to suit each school and delivered by our engaging and inspirational expert team of first-class facilitators. All resources and requirements are provided, enabling schools to simply enjoy the challenge!
Delivered through video messaging, students are set real-life business challenges from our supporting businesses. Guided by our expert team, students then work on the challenge throughout the day, before pitching their ideas for a chance to represent their school at the National Finals event. The winning team from every school is guaranteed entry to the National Finals.
An exceptional event and true celebration of enterprise, our national Grand Finals offer high levels of enrichment for your entrepreneurial students. School teams compete against each other for the opportunity to pitch live on stage to our VIP judges for the chance for their team to be crowned National Champions!
Judge Theo Paphitis remarked:
“Pitching isn’t easy, but it’s a fantastic opportunity…Some of the best pitches I have ever seen on The National Enterprise Challenge…have been even better than the ones I saw in the den!”
