Secondary schools and Sixth Form academies are at the core of our work. Schools can send up to fifteen students to participate in our accelerator programme.
We’re passionate about helping schools release the full potential of their students, and support 10 schools in every city we operate from.
Orbit’s Managing Director outlines the benefits that schools receive when they participate in the Orbit Programme.
Up to 100 Schools across the UK can receive support from Orbit’s Programme.
Orbit’s accelerator is looking to partner with ten schools in each city that we operate from. Our school partners help us to recruit the next generation of budding entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
Schools that work with Orbit are granted spaces for 15 students to participate in the programme. Our programme sits alongside the standard curriculum, and offers a broad range of subject areas which are not available in the current curriculum including Artificial Intelligence, Investing, and Interview Skills.
Working with Orbit grants your students access to an exclusive network of accelerator programmes limited to just ten schools per region.
Orbit only has capacity to work with ten schools in each region we run our programmes from. We work with Sixth-Form Academies and Secondary Schools whom are looking to provide fresh extra-curricular programmes for their 16-19 year old students to participate in.
Schools can apply to Orbit and establish the programme within their school with just five steps:
Orbit takes less than half an hour of a teacher’s time to administrate.
The main administrative duties include raising awareness of the Orbit programme to students within the school. After we receive applicants from students, we’ll let you know who we accept to the programme and send you monthly progress reports on the development of your students.
Orbit’s programme takes place on weekday evenings and weekends. Schools are not required to make any changes to timetables to accommodate the programme, and teachers are not required to administrate travel support.
Orbit’s programme has supported hundreds of Orbiteers from schools around the UK for over 3 years. When a school works with us, they can expect the following results:
