It is well known that the face of employment in the UK is changing rapidly. One of the biggest developments has been in the number of people becoming self-employed.
Linking Futures recognises that young people may not want to follow 'traditional' routes to employment and would like to set up their own business. We can provide opportunities to develop enterprise skills and enable young people to understand what it takes to be entrepreneurs.
We have previously joined forces with The Inclusive Enterprise Partnership who have delivered their 'Confident Start' and 'Be Your Own Boss' courses to our young people. More dates to follow soon. We have also supported a number of young people to apply for the Princes Trust Enterprise Scheme.
