Baker Tilly Channel Islands, is sponsoring four young students to attend the Jersey College for Girls’ Leadership and Entrepreneurship Accelerator Programme (LEAP)
The Leadership and Entrepreneurship Accelerator Programme (LEAP) takes place for ten days from 12th July, 2023, with participants from 30 countries.
Now in its fourth year, LEAP develops business, entrepreneurial and leadership skills through launching social enterprise projects to target key global issues. International teams of students aged between 14-18 years old formulate their ideas into a business pitch with £4,000 of prizes funding available.
Ewan Spraggon, Managing Director of Baker Tilly Channel Islands said: “We are delighted and proud to sponsor the LEAP programme. The programme brings together students from around the world and empowers them to develop entrepreneurial and life skills. It’s a fantastic opportunity for attendees and at Baker Tilly Channel Islands we are delighted to enable four students to attend this event, gain valuable business and life skills, as well as making life long memories and connections.”
Dr Peter Le Masurier, Director of Business and Education from Jersey College for Girls Foundation, said: “LEAP wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors which enable us to allow any student in Jersey to attend LEAP irrespective of their financial position. Watching these future leaders grow in confidence, make connections and develop the skills for later life is truly inspirational.”
