Partnership between online education pioneer, entrepreneurial success thought leader expands opportunities for gap year with purpose
WEST CHESTER, Pa. and OJAI, Calif., Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Laurel Springs School, a leader in online K-12 and postgraduate education, today launched an intensive eight-week program for its postgraduate students as they prepare for a career in an increasingly entrepreneurial world. Delivered in partnership with Entrepreneurial Performance Labs (EPL), the Entrepreneurial Talent Lab combines one-on-one sessions with EPL coaches, self-rated assessments tools, and interactive learning modules to help students better understand what they need to achieve success in entrepreneurial endeavors.
Over the course of an eight-week program, students identify and undertake personal development activities and mark their learning progress along the way. Choosing a specific area for development—such as resiliency or risk tolerance—students complete assignments, practice meta-skills such as reflection and self-awareness, and receive personalized feedback that allows them to apply insights within the context of their goals.
"The student-driven approach of Laurel Springs' Postgraduate program provides the perfect framework for the Entrepreneurial Talent Lab experience," said Jane Ferris, Ed.D., Dean of Students at Laurel Springs. "Packed with interactive, engaging content and personalized development sessions, postgraduate students with a keen interest in entrepreneurship—or who may already be active entrepreneurs—will discover and build upon key skills for success in this competitive field."
Utilizing the Entrepreneur Core Characteristics Profile and the Startup Clarity Project through EPL, students learn about the 11 characteristics associated with entrepreneurial success and cultivate their own self-awareness and entrepreneurial behavior, while strengthening qualities such as confidence and resilience.
"We are thrilled to partner with Laurel Springs School to provide a pathway for students to explore their entrepreneurial interests and talents," said Dawn Ballenger, Partner at EPL. "This allows us to build upon our highly-rated work with more than 1500 students at leading colleges and universities, and to further activate our belief that entrepreneurial talent will be increasingly valuable across a wide range of career paths."
Students who are interested in exploring their entrepreneurial aptitude and developing associated skills while pursuing a gap year with purpose through Laurel Springs' Postgraduate Program are encouraged to visit the school's website or contact the Admissions team at 800-377-5890. The Postgraduate Program is not limited to graduates of Laurel Springs, and interested students must be 20 years of age or younger.
