Transforming lives through enterprise education
‘Are You Ready?’ has an ambitious but essentially simple vision – to transform lives through enterprise, empowering educators, young people and communities to create a better social and economic future.
We provide innovative and high impact enterprise education training and provision, supporting schools, colleges and universities to work with young people, business and the wider community to create a culture of enterprise in education and beyond.
Our training and resources have been praised by Ofsted and include INSET, cluster training and bespoke programmes to enhance teaching and learning by embedding enterprising and entrepreneurial approaches throughout the curriculum.
We have a range of resources to support the development of enterprise in all settings and at all phases of education – from early years, primary, secondary and further education to initial teacher training programmes in universities.
As well as our work within education, we recognise the crucial role families and the wider community play in supporting and developing an enterprise culture so we have a range of services to engage and involve different stakeholders, from our award winning employer engagement programme ‘Make £5 Blossom’ to our enterprising family learning programme, The Family Money Tree.
Our approach is underpinned by a commitment to research and evaluation, and understanding the difference enterprise makes in education, to individuals and the wider community.
All our work harnesses ‘enterprise’ as a vehicle for transformation – raising aspirations and achievement, developing the skills and ‘can do’ attitudes needed for the 21st century. It brings the communities together to create a more prosperous future and inspires the next generation of entrepreneurs and enterprising employees.
