Enterprise Challenge - The Prince's Trust Can you mentor students aged 11-16 years old to increase their confidence, raise their aspirations and inspire them? 

We are looking for 50 mentors to support delivery of The Prince's Trust Enterprise Challenge to increase young people’s understanding of business concepts and how they can apply them. Interaction with mentors helps build the students’ confidence, employability and self-efficacy. 
The Prine's Trust Enterprise Challenge is an annual, national competition during which secondary school students aged 11-16 learn about establishing and running a business through a business simulation game. The five best performing teams in each region compete to receive a coveted place in the prestigious National Final, pitching their developed business concepts to an expert panel of judges. 
The competition is unique in that students benefit from being mentored by experienced business professionals who pass on their knowledge and skills about various aspects of business. 
Learning to Work have been a delivery partner for 6 years and we really feel our 7th year will be equally successful with the amazing support of local mentors who can really inspire and motive students as they participate in this hands on, interactive challenge.

Happy 25th Anniversary Learning to Work  

We are delighted to be celebrating our 25th anniversary this year. 
Established in 1994, the organisation has been linking businesses with education to help prepare young people for the world of work across Berkshire and surrounding areas for quarter of a century. Each year we work with over 18,000 young people on a variety of activities including Work Experience, Business Insight Days, Careers & Apprenticeship Events and Inter-school Competitions, as well as support for Special Needs and students struggling with mainstream. 
“We’re so excited to be celebrating 25 years of helping young people in Berkshire. Our crucial work would not be possible without the fantastic support of our business partners. The secret to our success is making sure our activities are impactful, relevant and a win - win, for both the young people and the businesses!” Rachael Burt, CEO.
