Enterprising Youths Programs

Enterprising Youths on a ProgrammeThe enterprise work of Ultima Performance Ltd, combined with the Heartmath tools and techniques, is specifically focused on helping young people to exploit their potential and enterprise talents.

We have designed a range of creative, innovative and action-based programmes covering every stage of the enterprise process, from ideas generation to business growth, to support young people and their teachers and supporters.

The programmes for young people, especially those who are NEET or pre-NEET or have behavioural or attendance problems, are designed to :

  • Boost self-esteem and performance
  • Motivate, inspire and enthuse you and your team
  • Encourage the generation new ideas, ambitions and perspectives
  • Offer accreditation where required in enterprise and arts based awards

Our programmes for teachers and support workers are aimed at building up their capacity and knowledge to support enterprise and creativity in the curriculum so they can:

  • Champion enterprise beyond the lifetime of our interventions
  • Involve parent and the community more closely with their children’s learning and the activities of the schools
  • Effectively exploit the resources available to the school or college to deliver the best education and opportunities to students

Our work is driven by our belief that enterprise has the potential to positively change young people’s lives in ways which are perhaps currently unimaginable to them.

Our programmes are designed to sit within the educational and enterprise strategies being developed at national, regional and sub-regional levels and to complement the work of those organisations delivering, for example, further and higher education, community and social enterprise development, business start-up and business growth support.
