Mosaic, an initiative of The Prince’s Trust, delivers mentoring programmes in high schools which promote entrepreneurship, confidence and employability skills. Mosaic’s Enterprise Challenge is an annual, national competition during which secondary school students aged 11-16 learn about establishing and running a business through a business simulation game.
The five best performing teams in each region compete to receive a coveted place in the prestigious National Final, pitching their developed business concepts to an expert panel of judges. The competition is unique in that students benefit from being mentored by experienced business professionals who pass on their knowledge and skills about various aspects of business. In the history of the competition, winning teams have enjoyed private trips on the London Eye, tea at Harrods, tea with the Prime Minister’s wife at 10 Downing Street, a trip to ITV News to meet Natasha Kaplinksy, a unique tour of Clarence House and a tour of HM Treasury. Mosaic also delivers group mentoring programmes in primary and secondary schools with the predominant focus of building confidence and self-efficacy, each led by a team of volunteer mentors who act as role models.
We offer high schools and primary schools in Oldham fully-funded mentoring schemes with a range of opportunities. We introduce and connect local employers to high schools to coordinate World of Work visits and inspirational speakers.
