Enterprising Yorkshire - Inspiring Young Minds

Enterprise Enhancement Fund 09/10

August 2009, the Young People's Enterprise Forum annouced the launch of the "Enterprise Enhancement Fund 2009-2010".

The aim of the Enterprise Enhancement Fund was to further develop enterprise education at Key Stages 3 & 4 throughout Yorkshire & Humber by giving schools the opportunity to apply for additional funding for specific enterprise activities.

A Review of the Enterprise Enhancement Fund 2009-10 activities concluded that the impact, diversity and creativity demonstrated by schools provided significant evidence, and an opportunity, for YPEF to continue strategically investing in a programme which enhances the regional provision of secondary enterprise education.

In total, the Fund supported 84 schools in Yorkshire & Humber and over 10,000 students and 900 teachers.
