SPEED-You-UP | Schools
Working together with Professionals and Educators in the battle against school dropout and youth unemployment.
Helping young unemployed people, aged 16 to 25 who live in Hampshire and Surrey with Employability and Entrepreneurial skills.
The school is one of the best facilities in England for children and young people with disabilities.
WSX was delivering Speed You Up sessions to two cohorts of students: for one group throughout June 2021 and for a second group from October 2021 to March 2022.
Each session which was run by SYU Coordinator and Trainer was attended not only by the learners but also by teachers and teaching assistants who contributed to the sessions.
Altogether a group of over 15 learners have attended training about self-employment which covered topics such as skills needed in self-employment, community analysis, generating business ideas and business planning. The learners came up with 3 brilliant business ideas and created 3 business pop-ups.
During the Business Pop Up event on 14th March the learners were presenting 3 businesses that represented the needs of the local community: In house cinema and In House Open Mike Club as well as putting together an International Recipe Cookery book.
The event was attended by special guests- stakeholders of the programme from Inspiring Enterprise, Bournemouth University and Children With Special Needs Foundation.
From September 2022 the Speed You Up training at Treloar’s will be delivered on behalf of WSX by three appointed teachers who were specially trained to deliver the course.
