Health insurance company praised for supporting young entrepreneurs

A private health insurance company is underlining its commitment to local communities by helping young adults learn about the world of business.

Following a link-up between Bupa’s social outreach programme Community Connections and business education charity Young Enterprise, six of the health insurance giant’s employees are working with students at Stretford Grammar School in Greater Manchester.

The partnership involves the insurance firm’s representatives giving advice about how to launch projects and promote them effectively – skills that they regularly employ when advertising new health insurance schemes.

And business ideas that are being supported include an initiative to offer younger students tuition and a scheme to sell greetings cards within school premises and beyond.

“Without all of the advisors from Bupa, this scheme would be impossible to run,” said Jeanette Ashton, head of sixth form at Stretford Grammar School, as she recognised the involvement of the health insurance company.

“The benefits of each group having two advisors experienced in the world of business are an invaluable knowledge resource.”

Bupa offers five main levels of health insurance cover – all of which cover basic costs such as hospital charges and consultant fees.
