Social mobility or, rather, social immobility is a prevalent issue in many societies and the UK is no exception. There are many viewpoints on exactly what causes social immobility and even more on exactly how it should be tackled. The ability to be enterprising and...

In the bid to inspire entrepreneurship and promote enterprise education, we must be clear about the difference between enterprise and profiteering. Society would be forgiven for confusing the two given the existing TV shows and enterprise schemes which exists, as well as the common idea...

I've come across some great pieces of research discussing corporate social responsibility (CSR) in a range of business sizes and types. Businesses' commitment to their sustainability and CSR is has been important for a long time in the corporate world but now it seems more...

We all want the best for our kids. In this fast-paced society, the next generation needs to grow up with the skills and mindset required to be successful, whatever life throws at them. Understanding businesses and how they work is a great starting point so looking for children's books about business is a very wise move.We're often asked if, in simple terms, the Clever Tykes stories are 'business books for kids'. Whilst this description provides a reasonable idea about the series, it ultimately sells the concept rather short. 'Business books for kids' implies quite a clinical approach to teaching children about 'business', which all too often is confused with profiteering. Here at Clever Tykes, we're very conscious that being enterprising is not about learning the mechanics and technicalities of starting a business and turning a profit. Being enterprising relates far more to attitude and characteristics, especially when we're growing up and in no real danger of setting up an actual business.
Enterprise education in not on the primary curriculum in the UK. This is why so many primary schools are choosing to adopt after school enterprise clubs to offer the opportunity for some students to learn important skills. After school clubs are a great way of helping children learn in an environment which is supervised but more relaxed than a formal classroom environment and serve a number of purposes for parents and the school. So why should schools adopt an after school enterprise club?

A beautifully written testimony from one of Clever Tykes' happy customers: The summer has begun! And by summer, I mean, I have the kids all day every day. As a parent, this happy time is defined by the continual presence of your delightful offspring and it's time...

Clever Tykes believe that everyone, regardless of their upbringing, should grow up with the opportunity to have a career they love. We know that we're not alone. We inspire children to be high-achieving, whatever the career they choose, through the use of positive entrepreneurial role models in storybooks. We know that there are organisations out there would would like to help us. That's why we have developed a CSR programme in Birmingham for local organisations to be involved with.
With the increasing emphasis on enterprise education, particularly at a primary level, some teachers’ ability to deliver this content might be called into question. Some argue that entrepreneurship cannot be taught by someone who has no experience of running a business, but is that unfair?Some teachers have never left the education system. The route through school, university, and a PGCE is familiar, with many teachers embarking on their careers in their early 20s. Furthermore, people in mainstream education grow up around teachers and understand the role of a teacher perhaps better than any other profession.
