We offer flexible learning qualifications as part of our work to support those unemployed or on a low income into self-employment.

Our programmes give learners the chance to develop their business around their other commitments. We know that heading into self-employment can be difficult, but doing so while raising a family or out of work is a real challenge.This is why we developed a fully flexible tailored education programme.

Each learner has a dedicated tutor & mentor to help them with their business plan.Our pilot programme ran from 2018 to July 2019 and due to our success, we are now delivering this programme with Skills Support for the Unemployed (SSU) and Adult Education Budget (AEB) funding across:

Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and the North East.
