This week starts off the first of our many NFTE Regional Finals taking place around the country over the months of March and April. Since September over 3000 young budding entrepreneurs have been working hard to create and develop their very own business through the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship Programme. The young people have been working extremely hard on their business plans and products to showcase and compete for a place in their regional final.
Meet some of our finalists from the past number of years, see how they identified the needs in their communities and set about making a positive change.
Read about the incredible work young people did in their community in 2018.
