Inspiring the next generation to think bigger.

What We Do

Orbit provides the most comprehensive support for secondary schools in the UK whom are keen to encourage the development of entrepreneurial skills within their teenage students.

We provide expert mentoring, exclusive workshops, and access to some of the UK’s biggest business leaders as we support 16 – 18 year old students to either launch businesses, or find the job of their dreams.

Our Work With Businesses

 On top of working with the leaders of tomorrow, we’ve applied our purpose built training content and unique delivery style to organisations around the UK whom are looking to unleash an intrapreneurial spirit within their company culture.


Businesses working with us gain access to advertising space within schools, training for staff, access to some of the UK’s biggest business figures, and access to a recruitment pool of some of the country’s brightest up and coming talent.

Kieran Aitken, Founder of Orbit

Just two years from launching, Orbit has grown from a one man band to having several staff members, and thanks to the support from RBS and The Princes Trust, we’re taking Orbit UK wide.

We’re a Social Enterprise, meaning that we are a business existing to solve a Social problem. We’ve never taken a donation in our existence, and we sustain ourselves by charging for our services. 

This gives us a motivation to be the best at what we do, as we need to be the best to stay in business.

Our biggest motivator, however, is seeing the impact that our programme’s have on the leaders of tomorrow. That’s why we’re here, and we want you to get involved.
