Want to start a business, side hustle, freelance, become self-employed or simply want to sharpen your employability skills?

Well then, our new Enrich programme delivered in partnership with Enterprising Worcestershire might be just the ticket for you!

Being prepared for the world of work will increasingly mean being more flexible and ready to respond to new opportunities as they emerge. This could easily mean working sometimes for yourself, or going the whole hog and starting your own business venture!

This free business skills programme will provide you with the insight, knowledge and confidence to do just this. And guess what; these skills are increasingly what employers are looking for in their businesses. Staff who have a growth mindset, are flexible and can create value.
