The National Enterprise Challenge (#TNEC)

Lord Sugar“The National Enterprise Challenge gives schools the opportunity to harness their pupils’ key employability skills. It gives students the opportunity to test themselves on a national level and businesses the chance to support the next generation of budding entrepreneurs. I am delighted to have been asked to be keynote speaker at the finals night in July and look forward to seeing you there. Best of luck with your challenges, everybody.“


The National Enterprise ChallengeRegistration for TNEC is now open to schools wishing to take part. With less than 100 team spaces left available, bookings are being taken on a first-come,first-served basis, so get in touch NOW! on 01924 277343.

TNEC, with Finals Day special guest Lord Sugar, has two age categories: Year 7/8 and Year 9/10.

Your school will receive an enterprise event delivered to the full year group by us, TNEC team, centred around two specifically tailored 'real life' business challenges. These challenges will be announced at our special launch event in January 2013.

Our team will facilitate the whole day, with the students working together in mixed ability groups of six.

The winning team will then go on to represent the school at the National Finals in London in July 2013, competing against up to 100 schools from across the UK.

The Finals Day will be a celebration of all things enterprise. The students will first pitch to specially chosen guest judges from the business community, before then taking their seats for the awards night.

As the judges deliberate, the students will receive a sit-down three-course dinner, during which they will wait excitedly for the winners of this nationwide challenge to be announced.

The winning groups will then pitch one final time – this time to a packed house, including some of the biggest names and sharpest brains in British business – before taking part in an all-inclusive Q&A with our special guest: Lord Sugar!

To round off this prestigious event, Lord Sugar will present the winning groups with their prizes and have photographs taken with them.

The night will also feature entertainment and promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all students lucky (and talented) enough to participate.

We believe that for all those taking part, win or lose, it will be an event to change lives, one to inspire the next generation of British entrepreneurs. It will certainly provide a great platform for schools to showcase the talents of your students to the local community, local media, and beyond…

With limited team spaces available across both age categories, make sure you don’t miss the boat by getting in touch TODAY!

The cost of the challenge is £1995.00 and we very much look forward to working with you on this exciting challenge!
