WSX Farnborough 6th Form College Hub

Farnborough 6th College has joined Speed You Programme in early January 2022.

Farnborough 6th College has  joined Speed You Programme in early January 2022.

The College is  based in Hampshire and is a home for almost 4000 students from around Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey. The school has got high expectations of staff and students, and provides an environment where students can reach their potential.

The cooperation with the college would not have been possible without help and enthusiasm of a business tutor Saffron Owen, Cecile Horncastle who is a Head of A level Business Department and Felicity Hamilton from the Careers Office.

There are 4 students who have been participating fully in the Speed You Up sessions and were learning amongst others about skills needed in self-employment, community needs and business planning. Following a session about  business pitching the students have attended the Business Pop Up event combined with Dragons’ Den in early April 2022. The business ideas and news from the Pop Up have been shared under the Pop Up news pages.

 Farnborough 6th Form Session 1

We were very pleased that during one of the sessions we were able to host a motivational speaker Lizzie Raffles from the Inspiring Enterprise Project who shared her knowledge and experience with the learners. During two sessions we also hosted another motivational guest Esther Anwuzia who works at the Bournemouth University and works on upscaling the project.

The sessions were run by WSX SYU Programme Coordinator and Trainer Adriana Crear but we are very happy to say that Saffron Owen has been recently  trained as one of the SYU Coaches and will deliver the course from September 2022 to ensure the longevity of the programme.
