3aaa to sponsor Ben Hanlin and Only the Young at The National Enterprise Challenge Finals 2015

We are delighted and excited to be sponsoring the presenters of the National Enterprise Challenge Finals 2015 which takes place at Alton Towers Resort on Wednesday 8th July 2015.

This year the sponsors are magician Ben Hanlin from ITV2’s ‘Tricked’ along with X Factor pop group ‘Only the Young’. The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge is an inter-school national competition, supported by the award’s main ambassador, Dragons Den’s Theo Paphitis.

In 2015, the challenge has seen over 30,000 aspirational students take part and compete for a place at the prestigious grand final. They travel to schools all over the country delivering the Ryman & Leather Satchel Co. challenge to KS3 students in Y7 & Y8 which is all about creating the perfect leather satchel or bag for a school based target market.


This year Alton Towers are supporting the event with the main grand final being held on the lawns overlooking the lake and the towers. The Alton Towers resort is also supporting the KS4 challenge for Y9 & Y10 students where they are tasked with creating the next world first attraction for thrill seekers in the park – the students have to work towards a £15million budget and has so far seen some phenomenal ideas from all students in both categories.

Members of the 3aaa team will attend the event in which there will be live entertainment, networking opportunities, a Q&A session with Theo Paphitis and of course, the main event of crowning this year’s winners for both challenges.

You’ll now find a 3aaa Academy in Bedford, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Croydon, Derby, Gloucester, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Maidstone, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Romford, Sheffield, Southampton, Swindon, Tamworth, Warwick, Watford, Worcester and York.
