News: Praise for enterprise education in Rotherham


An inspirational project in Rotherham has become the first of its kind to undergo an Ofsted inspection. Rotherham Ready, an enterprise education programme backed by £1.4 million of funding from Yorkshire Forward, involves all Rotherham schools and colleges and aims to engage all young people, aged four to 19, in developing enterprise skills. The report recognises the projects achievements in involving all students in enterprise education regardless of learning difficulties or disability. It also highlights the high status the project holds within Rotherham and beyond. The project was also praised for successfully inspiring head teachers and teachers to get involved in enterprise education and in maintaining momentum in developing it in their schools and colleges. Jackie Frost, Rotherham Ready Project Manager said: "We are delighted by our Ofsted report which is a great recognition of all of the hard work that students and staff have continually put into making sure that Rotherham is leading the way when it comes to enterprise education. "The report states that examples of good and outstanding practice were seen in the sample of institutions visited and that inspectors were impressed by the quality of some of the work in primary schools, these are areas of which we are extremely proud."
