LionHeart Collegiate Challenge

          Business & Enterprise Education:

Custom Designed for Further Education Students

The Collegiate LionHeart Challenge is an inclusive Enterprise Programme custom designed for Colleges, for their Further Education Students. The Programme is undertaken in a working day period within the college itself.


It is delivered by our professional, in-house trained, highly skilled and dedicated Business Coaches in a creative and meaningful format, to:

  • Provide an Enterprise and Work Related Learning Experience to bridge the gap for Students between college life and then later entering employment or starting up their own business.

Each Challenge commences with the announcement of a Challenge Theme: a cutting edge, highly technical, economic theme of national importance, around which the Teams (comprising of 10 Students) must form a full Business Proposal.


This is achieved by the Students by quickly cultivating acquaintances, pulling together and working as a team to undertake of a range of enterprise tasks and cover a range of business concepts at high pace
