LSBF on the look-out for Young Entrepreneurs of the Year 2012

London School of Business and Finance (LSBF), with the support of Job Centre Plus (JCP), is launching a competition to find Manchester's and Birmingham's Young Entrepreneurs of the Year, 2012.

In response to the growing need for education and employment opportunities for young people, LSBF is launching the competition to help young leaders or entrepreneurs get their first foot on the business education ladder. The winners will be awarded a full scholarship for an Undergraduate Plus qualification at LSBF's Manchester and Birmingham campuses.

To qualify, anyone with A/S Level, BTEC or equivalent qualification, and out of education or employment no longer than 12 months, just have to visit an open day at LSBF, to be held on Tuesday 27th March in Manchester and on Wednesday 28th March in Birmingham.

With support of the local JCP, anyone attending the open days will have the chance to get advice from careers and finance experts. JCP staff and Edexcel will also be on hand to discuss part-time job opportunities while studying, as well as the extensive progression routes once qualified. At the open day, entrants for the competition will be expected to demonstrate their vision and ambition by taking part in a 10 minute interview to explain why they should be Manchester's or Birmingham's Young Entrepreneur 2012, to a panel of three judges from the business school and local JCP.

Working with JCP to improve further educational opportunities in Manchester and Birmingham, Nicola Schaefer, LSBF Regional Director for Business Development, said:

"I am delighted that LSBF are able to provide this exciting opportunity for a local person to make such a positive step in their lives. Vocational Business qualifications are the most valuable way to demonstrate to an employer that you have both the acumen and experience needed to succeed in the business world. Combining this qualification with the opportunity to study in another country and LSBF's extensive corporate networks and excellent employment rate, this is a genuine and life changing opportunity, for any ambitious individual."

LSBF is an international business school with campuses around the UK and internationally in Singapore. LSBF believes that young people and future business leaders should have access to high quality education and training despite financial background. Last year, LSBF awarded over £2 million in scholarships to help young people realise their educational aspirations.
