SCHOOL PARTNERS

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.

SCHOOL PARTNER INTRODUCTION

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.

  • Free For Schools.
  • Takes less than 15 minutes to set-up.
  • Can support up to 15 schools per region.

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.

Requirements:

  • The school must contain at least 50 students aged between 16-19 years of age.
  • The school should have a nominated teacher whom takes responsibility for managing the relationship with Orbit.
  • The school must be in a catchment area with nearby city centre bus/train/public transport links to our City Centre based locations.
  • The school should apply to Orbit’s Programme as soon as possible to avoid being placed on our waiting list.

Schools can apply to Orbit and establish the programme within their school with just five steps:

  • Schools nominate their chosen teacher to administrate the programme. The teacher can then apply through the application form at the bottom of this page.
  • Our school’s relationship manager will arrange a phone-call induction with the link teacher in the school.
  • The school is sent Orbit posters, flyers, and our #Rise2Power promotional video.
  • Students from the school apply to Orbit through our website’s application form.
  • Our school relationship manager informs the school of who was selected to join the programme, and we’ll send monthly progress updates on the progress of your students.

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:

  • Up to fifteen students can benefit from our package of support.
  • Orbiteers can earn substantial amounts of money from their businesses/part-time jobs.
  • Orbiteers are trained to develop their communication, leadership, teamwork, planning, sales, networking, and critical thinking skills.
  • Orbiteers build networks with leading business figures and politicians, whom assist our Orbiteers to launch their career into the stratosphere.
  • Orbiteers have an opportunity to travel across the UK at weekends and experience new cultures.
  • Orbiteers can win cash prizes, dinner with a billionaire, and trips abroad to build international awareness and networks.
  • Orbiteers will leave Orbit having identified their ideal career path, and will have a five year career plan to help them get started.
  • Orbiteers will leave the programme with two references and an expertly designed CV.

“Incredible. I highly recommend schools to get involved.”
