Aspiring Entrepreneur placements are very different from a standard work experience week. The student spends the whole time alongside the lead entrepreneur/business owner and learns first-hand about what it takes to be an entrepreneur. The students are able to experience all aspects of business life for real – warts and all!
FEO member, Richard Hayes, who runs Beverley Motor Works hosted an Aspiring Entrepreneur and comments:
“It was a new experience for me as well as for the student – we spent some time discussing and honing his career plans and aspiration to run his own company. The day-to-day running of my business continued as normal and my student accompanied me to all meetings both internally and externally. I got a lot out of it personally as it made me feel proud and enthused about my business.”
