Young entrepreneurs from Sheffield are applying for the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones.

Students enrolled with the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy at Sheffield College are staking their claims to a place in the final of the organisation’s National Entrepreneur of the Year competition.

Six finalists will be selected from further education colleges across the country to present their business plans to Peter Jones.

Heather Smith, Sheffield College Principal, said: “Vocational courses like this one teach students specific work-related skills that give them a foot in the door to industry and a head start in their chosen career. They also prepare learners for further vocational study or university. I want to wish our enterprise students good luck.”
