£16m drive to give schools instinct for business

The
Learning and Skills Council has launched a new £16m initiative to help instil
more business thinking to the UK’s schools.

Youngsters
at 1,000 secondary schools are set to benefit from more than 100 enterprise
advisers to help them study work-related subjects.

The
Enterprise Adviser Service has been launched to help schools meet the challenge
of changes to the 14-19 curriculum, when work related learning will be
compulsory at Key Stage 4.

The
changes begin in September 2004 and are designed to improve the enterprise and
employability of school leavers.

The
advisers will also have access to development funds for additional resources or
services for development in schools.
