The Prince’s Trust Explore Enterprise course supports unemployed young people aged 18-30 in exploring the idea of becoming self employed, whether they have a business idea in mind or are simply interested in learning more.
The programme is only open to young people living in Edinburgh and the Lothians local authority areas.
WHAT IS EXPLORE ENTERPRISE?
A four day workshop for young people to learn about topics relevant to planning and running a business and to consider whether self employment is right for them.
It is designed to be practical, interactive, visual and based around discussions and activities. It aims to enable young people to feel what running their own business would be like and what it would involve.
Following the four day workshop the programme can then offer mentoring support to start a business or if self employment turns out not to be the right option, the programme can support young people to secure other outcomes in employment, education, training or voluntary work.
