The Hull Ready Programme

Hull Ready is an innovative enterprise programme for Hull primary schools, supported and promoted by a range of organisations including Rotherham Ready, St Stephen’s, the Co-operative Group, the Hull Youth Enterprise Bank, Hull City Council and Hull Training.

The project is made up of various elements which include;



More than 70 primary schools have taken part in the programme and over

140 teachers have been involved with the Inspire training days to become

Enterprise Champions for their schools. These training days have helped

teachers and schools realise that most of the things they are doing in their

curriculum is already enterprising, and by embedding the Big 13 skills it gives

everyone a common language to refer to.


The Make £5 Blossom element allows the children to have the support of a local

business and a £150 loan from them to run their own mini enterprise. Over each

of the seven rounds that have taken place to date, every school has managed to

pay back the original loan and make a profit; some were over a thousand pounds!

The celebration events, which see the children share their enterprise journey to

an audience, really showcase where the pupils have used the Big 13 skills as well

as being a chance to show how much they enjoyed being involved.


The Hull Ready programme also allows primary schools in Hull and East Riding

the opportunity to work towards the National Standard for Excellence in

Enterprise Education, an accreditation recognising the use of an enterprise

culture and enterprising activities.
