Supporting learning and life chances for young people on the Isle of Wight
Ed-WISE is working with key partners such as school career leads, to develop an Inspired Learning programme that could be delivered at all secondary schools on the Isle of Wight and help to raise student aspirations.
Invitation for businesses
to get involved
We are looking for more businesses to be involved in the delivery of the Young Enterprise & Ed-WISE Company Programme on the Isle of Wight.
Our comprehensive programme each academic year includes themed workshops in September and October around team structure, marketing, production and finance, making sure that our competing teams get off to a flying start.
We follow on with 2 Dragon Dens (in the Autumn & Spring terms) where the teams can gain cash investment and several high street retail trading opportunities - where their actual products and sold and promoted to the general public.
Everything leads up to a Grand Final in May.
More schools want to enter more teams in this competition, and so to support that we need more Business Advisors.
If this sounds inspiring to you, then contact us to discuss more.
An innovative careers website for students of all ages
Ed-WISE is currently working on a new careers website. Through video, business people will give an insight to students about what their industry is really like – showing the good and the not-so-good, allowing students to make a clearer choice about future careers.
Our success with Young Enterprise
We continue to work with Island schools to help their students succeed in the Young Enterprise programme. Below are some of the recent accomplishments.
