• The Inspirational learning Group, founded by cousins Ben and Michael Dyer in 2012 is expanding into new offices on the inspiring Staffordshire Education and Enterprise Park in Stafford.
• Jeremy LeFroy MP for Stafford will attend the official opening of the new offices at 10.00am on Friday 15th March
The Inspirational Learning Group, the UK’s largest enterprise and employability challenge, plays host to local MP Jeremy LeFroy at 10.30am on 15 March 2019 to mark the official opening of the organisation’s new offices on Stafford’s world class Staffordshire Education and Enterprise Park.
Since founding the Inspirational Learning Group in 2012, entrepreneurial cousins Ben and Michael Dyer have gone from strength to strength creating and delivering enterprise and employability programmes for young people, preparing and upskilling them to achieve success in their future career choices. Through first class delivery and local and national partnerships with school, colleges and employers The Inspirational Learning Group has established itself as a leading enterprise educational and employability provider, delivering the renowned National Enterprise Challenge, which is a KS3 & KS4 programme that has attracted over 450 schools and 200,000 students since its first challenge was launched back in 2013.
The new offices can be found on a beautiful garden-like campus with well-established classrooms, lecture-theatre, seminar-rooms, conference facilities, gymnastics and sports facilities, and student-accommodation on an area of 50 acres of land in the borough of Stafford. It will enable the company to grow into new areas including the delivery of the Government’s National Citizen Service and the launch of a new Alternative Provision for school centred around Enterprise.
The Inspirational Learning Group founder Ben Dyer said: “It is wonderful to welcome Jeremy LeFroy MP and so many friends, clients and business colleagues to the new offices. “The whole event is a fitting celebration to launch our team into the next phase of guiding young people into the world of work and to provide the UK with a skilled and ambitious workforce for the future. The hallmark of our business is strong and enduring partnerships and we continue to nurture and grow these to provide an excellent standard of enterprise education.”
Local MP Jeremy Lefroy said "I am delighted to be here for the opening of the Inspirational Learning Groups new offices on this exciting and inspiring campus here in Stafford. Education is the number one driver of productivity, business, and economic prosperity and, as we move towards a future post-Brexit, the future success and prosperity of the UK will increasingly depend on our ability to harness home-grown talent. We must continue to ensure that enterprise education supports the development of the skilled workforce our local businesses want. I wish The Inspirational Learning Group every success in that challenge.”
As well as promoting the spirit of enterprise, entrepreneurialism and transferrable skills, taking part in The National Enterprise Challenge can enable schools to meet some of the Gatsby benchmarks; giving students the opportunity to meet staff from local employers such as Ryman, as well as developing key skills that are valued in the workplace and will prepare them for life in modern Britain, which is a key focus of the government’s careers strategy.
Taking place over the course of a day it is open to full year groups and split into two categories; KS3 and KS4. Working in teams of six, the students work on fun and engaging real life business challenges set each year by businesses supporting the challenge. This year’s challenge will see the finals take place at Wembley Stadium in July 2019.
