Together Enterprise Scotland (Co-operative College)
Developed by the Co-operative College, the Together Enterprise Scotland project will be delivered at Pilton Youth and Children’s Project (PYCP).
Our project will empower young people aged 16 to 30 from Pilton and neighbouring areas to gain the tools, skills and confidence to explore setting up and running their own co-operative business with funding of £350 available for those who are successful.
Throughout the free weekly programme, you'll gain a deep understanding of co-operative values and practices through fun, interactive sessions that will help you cultivate business, entrepreneurial, and life skills.
All participants will be matched with a mentor from a local co-operative or business who can offer advice and guidance too.
That's not all either, as you'll also have the chance to earn an ASDAN Award in Enterprise.
You could either have an idea for a future business, none at all or anywhere in between! Our aim is to provide you with the skills and guidance you need.
- Lunch and the cost of travel are provided.
- Our project runs at different times throughout the year, so go to our website, or contact Gabriella to see when the next one starts. On the website you can also find out more information or register your interest.
