Gower College Swansea: new social enterprise develops enterprise skills in the very young

Gower College Swansea has spun out the Centre 4 Entrepreneurial Learning - an innovative and creative new enterprise programme to develop a “can-do will-do” attitude in the very young. Sue Poole, Enterprise Manager at the College, is also the CEO and Director of this new social enterprise that seeks to boost entrepreneurial skills in learners of all ages. Sue came up with the idea while out walking her new puppy. Sue said “The quiet times spent walking the dog gave me the time and space to think about developing a new programme to engage very young learners as soon as they enter full time education.” During her research, Sue learnt a great deal about bees and their teamwork, problem solving, creativity and determination - all key enterprise traits!
