Aldridge Policy Summaries

Aldridge Academies, UK:  Aldridge Academies in the UK employ a novel approach to education that appears to be exportable.  Each academy focuses on developing entrepreneurial attitudes, as every key stage 3 student runs a business as part of the curriculum. One of these team companies established a social enterprise which funded the building of a bakery in Uganda and the students worked virtually with local partners, exchanging ideas and shared experiences between girls in both schools. By focusing on this skills development alongside their academic qualifications Aldridge students are equipped to succeed in education, employment or self-employment.
