Getting Started

Congratulations on signing up for the Junior Achievement Company Programme, the world’s top entrepreneurial programme for young people in education.

Junior Achievement is a charity which raises £300,000 each year to help young people to develop skills for the workplace.

You will now have the opportunity to find out what it’s really like to set up and run a business and to make all the decisions about your company. This will include deciding on the company name, developing a product or service, creating a business plan, managing the company finances, selling to the public and ultimately winding up the company and paying taxes. All this takes place with the support of a volunteer business adviser and the Junior Achievement team.
