LHP Backs Young Enterprise at Queen Elizabeth School
LHP funds Young Enterprise’s Team Programme
LHP has invested in helping young people in an exciting project called Team Programme at Queen Elizabeth School in Carmarthen. LHP was pleased to back finances and appoint a business advisor to mentor students on the project – which involves students setting up their own companies and selling online on a safe YE platform.
About Team Programme
Team Programme by Young Enterprise is a flexible enterprise journey for students to gain insight and experience of the world of business. It runs for 3 months and supports transition from education to independent living. Life skills are gained as they work in teams to set up businesses.
LHP Director Janet Collins visited the programme launch today and said,
At LHP, as a firm of dynamic chartered accountants supporting local businesses across Wales, we believe in making a difference to the lives of young people and helping with their business goals.
We’re delighted to sponsor Team Programme in Carmarthen and look forward to mentoring students and seeing their business ideas take off.
Bethany Young, Area Manager at Young Enterprise said at the launch,
“Team Programme is designed to aid young people’s transition from education into independent living and employment, the programme develops confidence and life skills through working as a team to set up and run an enterprise. Students interact with adults and grow in confidence as they run their own student company.
They make all the decisions about their enterprise, from deciding on the name and product to selling to the public with pop up shops. I love working with the students at QEHS and I love all the products they create each year. They are always so creative and innovative, and this is demonstrated by the awards they win each year.
It’s great to have them back on the programme after the challenges of the pandemic and we are very excited for everything they have in store this year.“
