'Budding business minds follow a different path at Milton Abbey' - article in today's Telegraph

An article by Anthony Gardner has featured in today's The Telegraph, highlighting Milton Abbey's unique BTEC programme and 'Entrepreneur in Residence' scheme.

The article begins with an introduction to Milton Abbey's popular 'Entrepreneur in Residence' scheme - an annual Dragons' Den-style competition open to all pupils and led in the past by iconic business figures including Anya Hindmarch, Cath Kidston and Johnnie Boden (David Ross, co-founder of Carphone Warehouse, is to front the competition for 2016/2017).

It goes on to explain how the competition was originally devised to support the School's Enterprise and Entrepreneurship BTEC course, the most popular of nine BTEC courses currently offered at Milton Abbey, alongside other courses which include Hospitality, Countryside Management and Creative Media Production, and gives examples of pupils who have "flourished by opting for BTECs".
