Young people in Leamington can take inspiration from BBC Dragon’s Den star Peter Jones at a new academy running at Warwickshire College.

The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, founded by Mr Jones, aims to give young people skills and confidence in enterprise and entrepreneurship.

Students are taught how to enhance a company or set out as an entrepreneur in their own right.

The academy offers the BTEC Level 3 Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at Warwickshire College at both its Leamington and Rugby campuses.

The course culminates in a graduation ceremony where students get the chance to meet Peter Jones himself, and top performing students are also rewarded with special awards, including the National Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

Those wishing to apply for the 2014/15 entry should visit

Interviews are taking place in November and December.
