10th September 2021 — We are delighted to announce that we are adding ABE Endorsed KidsMBA to our curriculum and we will also be supporting the programme’s implementation in Malawi through the ABE For Schools Global Impact Programme.
A world-leading programme, it is aimed at children aged 11-15 and designed to complement and enhance school education whilst providing pupils a real-world taste of the life skills, know-how and aptitude required to run a business or become an entrepreneur.
Pupils will have fun whilst gaining the confidence to set-up in business and develop real-world business skills. At the end of the programme pupils will receive a KidsMBA Certificate of Achievement featuring the branding of ABE: an internationally recognised awarding organisation and business skills specialist.
We pride ourselves on rigorous and diverse education that goes well beyond the national curriculum. Our aim is to help pupils find their own path to success and happiness. We encourage pupils to take risks and recognise that failure is inevitable when learning something new – all of which align perfectly with the entrepreneurial mindset developed by the KidsMBA programme.
It is also our mission to develop thoughtful young people with a global outlook and this will be supported by the Global Impact Programme, with the implementation of KidsMBA at Kings School in Malawi running concurrently.
'‘I am incredibly excited about the KidsMBA and it will be a great addition to our Future Skills Programme at Belmont that develops skills that prepare our pupils for the future work force but also for life where we face continuous change and uncertainty. I am most enthused about our opportunity to link up with our partner school in Malawi and feel confident that it will prove a rich and worthwhile educational experience for pupils in both Malawi and Mill HIll.’' Leon Roberts, Head, Belmont Mill Hill Preparatory School
ABE’s Director of Business Development, Steve Smith said, “I am so pleased Belmont, Mill Hill Prep is including KidsMBA in its Year 8 curriculum and, with the Global Impact Programme, young people from different countries with very different backgrounds and life experiences will share their entrepreneurial ideas and ambitions. It is a fantastic way to develop global citizenship and add value to the learning experiences of children in both countries.”
