What we do

SkillBase Programme

The Enterprise Academy is a community hub for young people to share skills and tech resources for self-guided learning supported by alumni peers, educational advisors and business mentors.

The Academy has business projects and educational challenges proposed to it from partnering organisations for young people to undertake these work experience projects outside of school.

Tech Labs provide work experience at schools and colleges. Supported by our network of business and educational partners, the participating students are tasked by our sponsoring organisation to find a digital means of solving a business problem for real-world application.


Young people's work experience on Tech Labs and Enterprise Academy projects empowers them to manage their projects from start to finish, enabled by in-person and online mentoring support from businesses and educational partners, including Microsoft.

In helping our students build the knowledge, skills and connections they need for the workplace, through our partners at QA, we also work with them to explore apprenticeship opportunities to fast-track their future employment.
