In order to embed an enterprise culture and nurture key skills, we need to embed enterprise from an early age. Central government (through DCSF and BERR) has recognised the important role primary education will play in enterprise education and for the last three years, Yorkshire Forward has funded the development and delivery of an extensive primary education project in Rotherham known as Rotherham Ready which is now recognised as best practice nationally. Rotherham Ready is an Enterprise Education programme run by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council.
YPEF have contracted with Rotherham MBC to extend their primary education programme to other parts of the Yorkshire & Humber region. For 3 years commencing in 08/09 the project will be run in the Hull City Council area and will be known as Hull Ready. The programme aims to work with local partnerships to ensure that it adds value and builds on existing activity as well as sharing national and international best practice and bringing together innovative partnerships to move the region towards its goal of being the best place for young people to live and grow up in.
