The Company Programme (age: 16-19)
The main objectives of the Company Programme is to bridge the gap between the theoretical and practical implications of business and bring this closer to the students.
In the Company Programme students learn how to take a business idea from concept to reality. They form their own real enterprise and discover first-hand how a company functions. They elect a board of directors from amongst their peers, raise share capital, and market and finance a product or service of their own choice. At the end of the programme they present a report and accounts to their shareholders.
Since its launch in 1919, Company Programme students around the world have had hands-on experiences that develop new skills such as teamwork, leadership, presenting, planning and financial control as they learn to take responsibility for the success of their company. It’s the perfect preparation for working life!
The programme is supported by volunteer advisers from the business world who are on hand to guide and mentor the companies. The JA-YE Company Programme is recognised by the European Commission Enterprise Directorate General as a ‘Best Practice in Entrepreneurship Education’.
