News: Secret millionaire in Rotherham


Marketing expert, social entrepreneur and secret millionaire, Carl Hopkins, will be back in Rotherham next week in his capacity as founding patron of the enterprise education programme, Are You Ready?

Are You Ready? aims to prepare young people for the challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st Century by inspiring teachers to integrate enterprise skills and culture into the life and curriculum of schools and colleges.

The programme is based on the internationally acclaimed enterprise education programme, Rotherham Ready. The innovative programme saw Rotherham win a national competition and was named the most enterprising place in Britain.

The training event at Rockingham Professional Development Centre on October 4 will see the Are You Ready? team sharing how to use enterprise as a vehicle to drive school improvement and where our founding patron, Carl Hopkins will be exploring the most effective ways to engage with employers in order to raise aspirations.

Carl was "blown away" by the comprehensive strategy the team had developed to transform school culture and put enterprise at the heart of teaching and learning.

Carl said: "I'm really proud to be associated with this new phase of enterprise in education which the Are You Ready? team are creating. They're not just thinking about one-off opportunities for schools to work with businesses but they have a passion to change the way schools operate - creating an enterprising culture from the inside."
