About NACUE's Leadership Academy


NACUE Leadership Academy is a new one year peer-to-peer learning programme, from September to June, specifically designed for student enterprise societies, who want to start, develop or take their societies to the next level.

Our purpose is to create a sense of learning community that empowers tomorrow’s leaders by providing them with the opportunity to share knowledge, shape learning experiences, build and expand their network and develop their leadership skills and entrepreneurial mindset. Simultaneously, this will also open up the chance to voice their achievements, showcase their impact and foster collaboration between societies across the network. Our aim is to support and mobilise student societies by providing the needed tools and techniques to excel and strengthen their impact.

The programme kicks off with a Leadership Academy Bootcamp, hosted in Loughborough University London on the 20th - 21st September 2018.

Throughout the year, you’ll have access to NACUE events and our network and there will be a wrap up of the Leadership Academy event with an Awards Ceremony, where the participating societies have the chance to voice their achievements and showcase their impact across their community and beyond - a day celebrating tomorrow’s leaders. Additionally, we’d like your contribution when we hold targeted online blogs and discussions throughout the year.

Powering the Enterprising Generation

Our mission is to support the development of education and student engagement throughout college and universities by championing student enterprise societies and peer-to-peer learning. NACUE started from an extraordinary movement in student entrepreneurship, providing young individuals with a platform to be experimental, creative and inspiring in their approach to enterprise and entrepreneurship, encouraging a bottom-up approach to inspiring the next generation.

Today, we see over 200 enterprise societies, powered by peer-to-peer groups, who are championing the success of young people throughout their interactive programmes by forging collaborative relationships with their institutions to provide greater experience and development opportunities for their peers. Establishing regional links with locals SME’s who are keen to open their doors to emerging talented, proactive and enthusiastic graduates perpetuates this.

Our work is dedicated to supporting the development and encouragement of entrepreneurship amongst young individuals and forms the sole purpose of NACUE. To learn more about NACUE and the services we produce, click here.

As a not-for-profit, we raise charitable donations that allow us to widen the opportunities available to young people in relation to enterprise and entrepreneurship, strengthening student engagement, the quality of education and connecting and representing student enterprise societies and student entrepreneurs worldwide.

NACUE is a charitable organisation that supports 32,000 students and young people every year. As funding becomes harder to obtain, we rely on the generous support of donors to ensure our programs can continue to change the lives and aspirations of the younger generation.

A donation of any size goes a long way to furthering our work and really is greatly appreciated. Every gift matters in aiding our mission of ‘Powering the Enterprising Generation' but we mainly rely upon the generosity of our members and alumni to do this. By making a single or regular donation you can make a big difference. To learn more about how you can donate, please follow the links below.
