Our founder, Peter Jones CBE, said “I would like to wish good luck to all those collecting their GCSE results today – I hope that you get the grades that you deserve.
“As much as results day is about celebration, it’s also about decision making. I launched the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy in 2009 to give young entrepreneurs the skills and opportunities to pursue a worthwhile and rewarding career and it is more important than ever that we inspire our young people to dream big about their future.
“I believe passionately that we must encourage more young people across Britain to consider career paths in enterprise and entrepreneurship and I urge anyone interested to have a look at the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy.”
The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy delivers specialist courses in enterprise and entrepreneurship. Operating in colleges across the country, the academy takes a very practical, hands-on approach to preparing students for success in the working world. We concentrate on giving young people the right knowledge and skills to forge a career path of their choice – whether that means setting up a business, working for a top company or going on to higher education.
