Through various practical activities and challenges, it becomes an enjoyable way for students to get to know each other and their leaders. We look at each of the facets (spiritual, social, emotional, physical and financial) that make up our personal wellbeing, considering how our lives look holistically and setting goals for the year ahead. We also begin to set biblical foundations on which we can build, looking at what God’s Word says about business, about finance, and about relationships with others.
The Young Entrepreneurs Business School is a full-time, non-residential course which begins in September following the UK academic year to July. Accommodation is available on request.
The school follows a normal Monday to Friday business week, lectures generally running from 9am – 1pm with application and practical’s from 1pm – 4pm. Two afternoons a week are also set aside for Open University study time.
Extra practical equipping, day trips and community projects can take place some evenings and weekends. Students will be advised of these dates in advance.
Students will complete an Open University Certificate in Business Studies which will count towards receiving a degree. Some lecture time will be set aside for personal study towards the qualification.
