Peter Jones Enterprise Academy

Peter Jones Enterprise Academy

background
Academy Rob Lowe
  • 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 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 a nationwide network of Academies at around 30 educational providers, we offer unique courses in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at BTEC and Apprenticeship level. Founded on a philosophy of ‘learning by doing’, our courses teach young people aged 16+ about the world of business; the importance of enterprise and the value of developing a true entrepreneurial spirit. 

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.
