- The Peter Jones Foundation gives young people a brighter future through a range of pioneering education activities and other much-needed encouragement and support initiatives.
- We teach young people how to be entrepreneurial and encourage them to make a difference to their lives, the communities they live in and the wider economy
Our vision for the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy (formerly the National Enterprise Academy) began to take shape in 2008.
Peter has always tried to bust the myth that entrepreneurs are born and not made. He firmly believes that valuable skills and know-how can and should be taught.
Today, through our programmes at 35 further education colleges around the country, we offer five unique BTEC courses in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship to teach young people aged 16 to 18, about the world of business; the importance of enterprise and the value of developing a true entrepreneurial spirit.
The BTEC offers our students the first accredited qualification in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship.
Peter is keen to encourage much greater involvement across the whole education sector for enterprise and entrepreneurism and continues to lobby vigorously for this wherever he can.
