Do you have a brilliant idea that you wish to develop, want to be self-reliant, and in control of the hours you work and your earning potential? If so, you may be interested in starting your own business, becoming self-employed or working as a freelancer.
We are currently working with the Princes Trust to raise awareness of self-employment as a career opportunity and develop students’ skills and understanding of self-employment.
If you are aged 18-30 and would like to access training, mentoring, funding, and resources, why not sign up for the virtual, interactive course provided by the Princes Trust.
