The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy was founded in 2009, with a view to encourage more entrepreneurial activity in the United Kingdom based on a philosophy of 'learning through doing'. Through their enterprise courses, which combine innovative teaching methods, work placements, and sessions led by industry experts, The Enterprise Academy aims to equip young people with the skills and mindset needed to run their own business, or provide them with the business acumen to succeed in employment.
Paul has been involved with The Enterprise Academy at Oldham College for nearly a year now, assisting with mentoring and coaching, motivational speaking, and support with business plans. Through delivering masterclasses and entrepreneurial talks, business leaders such as Paul provide a significant part of the learning experience on courses run by The Entrerprise Academy. Speaking on his involvement with the educational establishment and the students he has tutored, Paul states "I love working with youngsters that are motivated by business, they are driven and enthused, and are certainly going to be our future business leaders".
