Cambridge Leadership College: education 4.0
Cambridge Leadership College is a specialist in post-16 education with a focus on entrepreneurship. Our mission is to prepare young people for a future of constant change.
This is an international 6th form college with a difference: our students study CIE A Levels or the Cambridge Leadership High School Diploma at the same time as working on a business. Academic success alone is not enough to succeed in the new economy. In order for you to become future-proof, you need to become entrepreneurial.
We use accelerated learning techniques to free up time for our students to work on business creation.
Cambridge Leadership College takes advantage of its central Cambridge location to tap into the city’s business community as well as bringing in tutors who have been educated at Cambridge University. Students are regularly taken to business and networking events so they can meet, and learn from, other business owners.
Our world is changing. Over the next two decades, artificial intelligence will transform the way we work and the jobs we do. The skills valued by employers and the ones you need to succeed will be different to those your parents had.
You still need academic qualifications of course but these are not enough. In order for you to prepare for the future world of work, you need to be innovative. It means being creative. You need to see the big picture. You have to be a risk-taker and a fast learner.
As a parent, the biggest question to consider when choosing a school for your child is this: What will the world look like in 10, 15, 20 years time, and which school will best prepare my child to succeed in such a world?
As a student you have to ask yourself whether the existing model is going to be right for you or whether you need to look at doing things a little differently.
What our students say
“Cambridge Leadership College gave me the confidence to take the first steps into life after education. I think that what makes CLC so incredibly different is the passing on of control of education to the student.”
“We are free but we are really free here. We are free to do whatever we want and teachers will never limit us. We are more like a person rather than a student here.
I feel happy and honoured to be one of the people who have the chance to witness and experience this revolution in education.”
Delivering education industry 4.0 needs
The ability to get things done, to be self-sufficient and self motivated are all necessary skills highlighted by industry leaders and Cambridge Leadership College provides a framework for students to learn and practise these skills.
An entrepreneurial mindset is cultivated through students working on real business projects developed through their interaction with a network of organisations and entrepreneurs from diverse industries.
Students’ daily practice of agile and scrum methodologies focusing on outcomes and reflection enables students to construct their own targets for learning.
The combination and equal weighting of academic qualifications and the opportunity to develop commercial awareness through the creation of their own businesses is a new and very different proposition in post-16 education.
Cambridge Leadership College staff and subject experts coach and mentor students who learn what they have worked out they need to learn, not what they are told they should learn.
