UKTI announces Entrepreneur Festival to bring global talent to Britain

UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) announced the launch of a new venture today aimed at boosting Britain’s community of young entrepreneurs with global ambitions. The  Entrepreneur Festival will offer final year students (BA/BSc level, Masters or Research degree programmes) and recent graduates from universities around the world an intensive induction into what it’s like to be a young entrepreneur in the UK.

Hosted in Manchester from 4-6 September, the Festival will bring budding entrepreneurs from a huge range of different countries together to learn about, and be mentored in, how to start a business in the UK. It will provide an opportunity to meet investors and inspirational mentors to get insight and advice, visits to UK businesses in a variety of sectors, and experience of working with peers from around the world to tackle practical business challenges.

The UK is one of the best places in the world to become an entrepreneur and we want to attract graduate talent into the UK to do just that, offering the guidance and support of the country’s entrepreneurial community, experts and specialist networks. If you’re a final year student or graduate and you have an exciting idea that you think one day will create a successful business, come to UKTI’s Entrepreneur Festival and find out how you can realise your ambition.

The Festival is open to recent graduates or final year BA/BSc level, Masters or Research degree students at, universities in the UK and elsewhere in the world. visit www.entrepreneursfestival.ukti.gov.uk

English Teaching Graduate Scheme

Are you unemployed and graduated in the last three years?

You could be eligible to apply for a place subsidised by the British Council to study a Trinity CertTESOL or Cambridge CELTA course at a UK training centre in 2013.

In many regions around the world there is a huge and growing demand for English language teaching and a need for quality teachers to meet this. This new scheme from the British Council will help provide unemployed graduates (from the last three years) with a gateway into an exciting and dynamic career which gives an insight into other cultures and communities while also helping people around the world to meet their own goals and aspirations.
