New Type of School – Centre of Enterprise

I would like to suggest that potentially self-funding schools are founded in areas with high unemployment with the aim of fostering enterprise. Pupils could be taught all the necessary skills needed to set up and market their own business. The school could incorporate exhibiton ares and a retail outlet. They could also trade online worldwide. Pupils could also earn money by providing services to the local communty. It would be compulsory for teachers to have spent some time as a self-employed person and the general approach would be positive towards self-employment.

Business could participate and sponsor pupils. A worldview could be fostered. The creative approach would ensure that the process learning is fun but also it could be taught that making money can be enpowering. Pupils would see the results of their endeavours being ploughed back into the school creating growth of the school. Even if the school struggled financially there would be lessons to be learned.

Why is this idea important?

Enterprise Zones for Self Employed

 






Councils are lacking in both money and ideas that encourage enterprise. They are not entrepreneurial by nature and do not understand the needs of small business and the self-employed.

 

In the UK we have plenty of talented and creative individuals capable of growing businesses and plenty of empty commercial premises. I would like to suggest that a nationwide enterprise task force is set up that is most importantly staffed by people from a business background who understand the needs of the self-employed.

 

If the task force had special powers to create enterprise zones within local communties those participating could be protected from interference from red tape and conditions could be created that allowed eneterprise to thrive.

 

The scheme would be about local regeneration, rebuilding pride in the community but at the same time be a strong national movement supporting and demonstrating what the strengths of the UK are and aiming to build businesses that have potential to grow.

 

The enterprise zones would be controlled areas guided by rules set up to allow business to thrive, those participating in the scheme could team up exchange and share skills. The areas could be free of normal legislation and special insurance schemes could devised so that all invoved would be protected. There could be shared exhibition facitilies, retail outlets and other shared facilites. Business angels could be invited to paticipate,  importing agents could be encourage to visit and advise.

Big business could be encouraged to support the scheme financially as there would be prestige associated with potential success and benefits to them in many other ways.

The whole scheme could be celebrated and publicised by the media and become inspirational to those who are unable to find employment.
