“Being a Dynamo Project Role Model gives me the chance to help with the countrywide growth of entrepreneurial spirit – never more needed than now as our Country continues to borrow money, import goods that it could make and import food it could grow. We live in silly times dominated by too many who hold on to power for personal reasons. I remain ever energized to encourage and deliver home growth so that we may give of our healthiest best when contributing to the World stage and its performance.” (Grant 2006)
In the words of Jane Davidson AM – Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning (2006) :
“We need more people with imagination and motivation to set up enterprises and create exciting opportunities for themselves and others.
This means sowing the seeds in all walks of life, especially among young people in our schools and colleges. Our young people need to be entrepreneurially confident to play a full and active part in the economy.
I believe that our young people have talent, flair and ability in abundance. Entrepreneurship education seeks to harness this talent to ensure it matures and helps develop an enterprising culture for Wales.
Through programmes of entrepreneurship education we aim to ensure that Wales has a new generation, imbued with a “can-do” attitude and driven by an entrepreneurial spirit.
The Youth Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Strategy (YES) is focused on 3 main action areas for this work:
Awareness Learning Support
I look forward to schools and colleges everywhere grasping this opportunity, taking advantage of the programmes and to seeing this work bearing fruit in the years ahead.”
