Dream Bigger.

Orbit’s Accelerator is the most powerful training programme for 16-19 year-old school students. We’re supporting our Orbiteers to launch real businesses and secure jobs in the industries of tomorrow, and develop the seven skills required for success.

Powerful Support.

We have Gaffs in ten cities across the UK, and provide our Orbiteers with workshops, mentoring, online training, and access to billionaire entrepreneurs.

With this support, Orbiteers are building six-figure businesses and securing incredible jobs before their 18th Birthday.

The Two Routes.

Looking to kick start your career?

Our Intrapreneur accelerator provides the most comprehensive career support available. Our support is centred around helping our Orbiteers to secure jobs, either in an industry of the future or an industry of the Orbiteer’s choice.

We’ll provide twelve-months of:

  • One-to-One mentoring from our business experts, centred around helping you identify and enter the career path of your dreams.
  • 12 Exclusive Workshops, where you’ll learn from industry leaders on what it takes to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace.
  • Online Training Content, where you can download winning CV templates, and practice psychometric tests and develop interview skills.
  • Access to billionaire entrepreneurs and leading politicians, so that you can learn what it takes to achieve success in your chosen occupation.

The programme exposes Orbiteers to the future of work, and explains the industries likely to be replaced by automation. We develop the skills needed to secure jobs and thrive in the workplace; including CVs, interview skills, entering the workforce, conducting meetings, delivering presentations, and working in teams.

Looking to develop a business from idea to fruition?

Our Entrepreneur Accelerator is the first of it’s kind for 16-19 year old students. We support Orbiteers to find a viable business idea, develop a business model, build a product, implement sales funnels, conduct marketing campaigns, manage operations and supply chains, and measure business performance.

We’ll provide twelve months of:

  • One-to-One mentoring from entrepreneurs, taking you step by step through the process of building a business.
  • Exclusive workshops, where you’ll learn from successful entrepreneurs and the tools they’ve used to succeed.
  • Online training content, where you can download business planning templates, and complete online courses covering everything you’ll need to know to make your business a great success.
  • Access to billionaire entrepreneurs and leading politicians, where you can learn what it takes to succeed in business.

Even if the Orbiteer does not have a business idea, we have a package of businesses that can be launched by following our “recipe”. We focus on developing entrepreneurial behaviours, and nurturing the key skills required for success including: pitching, conducting meetings, networking, organising resources, and planning for success.

Compulsory Features.

Gather with 100 Orbiteers in your region for the monthly Gaff Session.

Gaff sessions feature an induction for new Orbiteers, workshops for our entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, comfort crunchers (where we push you outside your comfort zone), and the Orbiteer of the month award.

Gaff sessions take place between 5:45pm and 7:45pm on the last Tuesday or Thursday of the month (depending on your location).

Receive one-to-one mentoring every month from our team of expert Champions.

Our Champions are business experts that are giving their expertise back to our Orbiteers. They provide advice, feedback, accountability, and help set three monthly targets for our Orbiteers to achieve.

Orbiteers can book a 30-minute Champion Session at a time and place of their convenience through our online booking system.

Non-Compulsory Features.

Access our online platform and learn from the best.

We release new online courses every month, and the platform provides links to download CV and business plan templates.

 

Meet with billionaire entrepreneurs and leading politicians. 

Our Orbiteers get access to our VIP Life Story events, where special guest visitors share their stories and tips for success. Orbiteers even get the chance to meet the VIPs in person!

The Orbit Retreat takes place in London this December.

Gather with 1000 Orbiteers across the UK for a day full of workshops, inspirational speakers, and networking.

A Tour and a Case-Study.

Luke Arghiros joined Orbit’s Accelerator Programme in 2016. With the help of his mentor, Hazel, Luke launched a videography business where he charged businesses for producing bespoke videos.

He netted £10,000 in his first year of trading, secured a space at a prestigious University, and called Orbit “A Life-Changing” experience.

FAQs

Is Orbit free for schools?

Yes, Orbit is completely free for both schools and Orbiteers. We’ve developed a unique sponsorship model which allows Orbiteers and Schools to access content worth £1000/Orbiteer completely free of charge.

What happens on my first session?

You’ll be given a video introduction to the programme upon being accepted and an information guide outlining session dates and the location. You’ll be given a warm welcome and join 30 new and existing Orbiteers in our Gaff where the programme will be explained to you.

DO I HAVE TO TRAVEL AROUND THE UK?

No, Orbiteers are not required to travel around the UK. Orbiteers can watch live-stream video footage of events and workshops taking place across our Accelerators. We do encourage Orbiteers to travel, as this allows them to explore new cities and make valuable connections across the UK.

What happens when I complete 12 months on the accelerator?

After completing the 12 months of intensive support on the accelerator, Orbiteers receive a further 24 months of ad-hoc support which they can receive on their own free will. This includes additional mentoring, workshops, and online training aimed to keep their businesses and careers flourishing.

When can I join the accelerator programme?

Orbit is a rolling programme. This means that Orbiteers join every month, and Orbiteers that have received their 12 months of intensive support move onto the post accelerator package of support. Inductions are provided to new Orbiteers every month.
