Enterprise - Joseph Leckie Academy and The Albion Foundation

Students at Joseph Leckie Academy had the opportunity to participate in Enterprise programmes in conjunction with The Albion Foundation. All sessions took place at the Academy every Tuesday and were delivered by enterprise coordinators from the West Bromwich Albion Foundation.

Students in Year 7 and 8 took part in the ‘Premier League Enterprise’ which was a programme that uses a football club’s business model to inspire young people to engage more positively in education and achieve to their full potential. Topics covered included:

  • The Fan Experience
  • Attracting Customers
  • Money Matters
  • Managing the Business
  • What we will sell?
  • Aiming for Success

Students in Year 9 and 10 took part in the ‘Premier League Pilot Enterprise’ which was a differentiated intervention programme to inspire young people to engage more positively in education and develop life skills to raise awareness of the world of work. Topics covered included:

  • Goal setting/ Aspirations
  • Employability
  • Aiming for Success

Students who participated in the programme also had the opportunity to complete their final sessions at the WBA stadium. Students completed two educational sessions and also had the opportunity to take part in multi-sport activities at the WBA Community Sports Hall. Students were accompanied to the visit by Miss Ravat and Mr Ahmed. All students who took part were a credit to the Academy and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the programme and visiting the stadium. Analysing the academy data, we have also noticed an overall improvement in both pupil progress and behaviour for the majority of students who participated in the programme.
