Gazelle was created in 2011 by five college principals with an exclusive focus on building a recognisable cluster of entrepreneurial colleges within five years.
Gazelle combines the exceptional experience of entrepreneurs who have succeeded in business with leaders in the further education and wider public sector. They believe that in the current economic global climate it is vital to foster a new generation of social and commercial entrepreneurs; entrepreneurs who can add value to communities, bring innovation to existing businesses and who can create their own employment with confidence and ambition.
FE colleges will play an integral role in achieving this goal, but they must be prepared to make the changes needed to deliver a different outcome for students in the 21st century workplace.
Gazelle has formed The Gazelle Colleges Group, an alliance of colleges committed to transforming the curriculum to encourage an entrepreneurial mindset in their students; a mindset that will serve employers well and increase opportunities for all.
