UPDATE 21st March: A £10m Youth Enterprise Loan Scheme was announced in the 2012 budget. News Link
Following pressure from Richard Branson’s Virgin Media Pioneers Campaign, and David Cameron’s support of the idea, a scheme that will offer young people a ‘Student Loan’ type business loan to startup a new company may in fact make it into George Osborne’s Budget on 21st March.
This means young people now have a fourth option, and perhaps this fourth option will become as socially accepted (expected?) as going onto University after college? How will it compare to going to University?
