“No enterprise can exist for itself alone. It ministers to some great need, it performs some great service, not for itself, but for others; or failing therein, it ceases to be profitable and ceases to exist.”
Here at London Enterprise Academy we believe in not only the spirit of enterprise- creative problem solving but also in its reality. We want our students to have skills which will take them beyond university and help them to become the entrepreneurs of the future.
In Enterprise the students have hands on access to creating small groups who work together to create small profit and not for profit businesses to solve problems in the community. This is a student led project which fits in with our project based learning. Such that we had a dress up day for the Roald Dahl foundation during Matilda. The students will look at environmental issues in the environment project and decide on what action to take in the consequences project. Their groups can work to raise awareness of global issues as well as tackle hands on local issues such as creating a food bank and holding a book swap to support reading in the community.
In future years they will set up their own banks and enterprise companies with local social entrepreneurs.
