Teachers, we hear you.

We’ve worked with hundreds of teachers across the UK.

We know that the Government is constantly setting new targets.

We understand that you’re very busy teaching classes.

We see how difficult it can be to re-arrange timetables and make transport arrangements.

We know that the school is blasted with marketing for new and untested employability programmes every week.

Students, we hear you.

We’ve worked with hundreds of students across the UK.

We understand how difficult it can be to choose a vocation after leaving school.

We know how much pressure is put on exam grades, as opposed to the skills that employers are looking for.

We know that you’ve participated in boring educational training programmes that resulted in you gaining nothing except from an increased desire for sleep.

We've started a revolution in UK Schools.

Available for Secondary Schools and 6th Form Colleges across the UK, Orbit Infinity is the most comprehensive programme for 16-18 year old students that either want to start a business, or work for a start-up.

It’s both easy and cost effective for a school to sign-up and join our programme, and it takes less than one hour for a teacher to administrate the programme.

In short, we make MASSIVE impact without causing teachers any administration hassle.

Our Revolution

See our one minute video on how Orbit Infinity is changing the lives of young people across the UK.

The video explains how our unique programme works, and why Secondary Schools and 6th Form Colleges across the UK are signing up to participate.

Our new #Rise2Power campaign video is coming soon too, which shows actual footage of Orbit in action.

The Orbit Infinity Programme

Orbit Infinity is designed to be the most comprehensive skills development programme available for students in schools and 6th Form Academies today.

Our Programme focuses on learning by doing, whilst creating a positive and vibrant atmosphere in the process.

The BIG 7 Skills

In a world that is changing by the day, the workforce of tomorrow will need preparation to thrive amongst changing trends.

Orbit’s Programme is built specifically to nurture the seven skills that are essential for the success of our Orbiteers in tomorrow’ workplace.

  • I understand how credit works, and how to calculate my credit score.

Networking Skills

  • I feel comfortable meeting new people.
  • I present myself with intelligence and vibrancy to everyone that I meet.

Team-working Skills

  • I understand the factors that make a successful team.
  • I can work harmoniously with those around me.

Sales Skills
