How St David's College Became Known For Nurturing Young Entrepreneurs

"We want our learners to go out and be confident in the world," the head of St. David's College's sixth form tells the Daily Post in Wales.

"The ability to set up their own businesses and be confident in that informs our whole curriculum."

The independent school in Llandudno is known for its entrepreneurial spirit, with students taking part in local, national, and international business competitions.

"We offer opportunities to get out of the classroom and into real business environments, to run a mini-business in school, and to take part in business competitions such as the Student Investor Challenge and the 10X Challenge," says Mark Turner, the school's head of business and entrepreneurship.

St. David's has also won the Business and Enterprise Student of the Year Award in 2016 and 2018, as well as the Ultra Education Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

The school's students "are more often than not people that think outside of the box, they're problem-solvers, and they approach issues in different ways," Turner says.

"If you don't want to start a business, we find these entrepreneurial skills are transferable."
