Exploring Enterprise Programme (EEP) is a free programme which provides an insight into starting a business or allows you to take the first steps to gaining employment.
You do not need to have a business idea to join.
The programme offers mentoring and training at a pace tailored to your needs and you have the opportunity to work towards achieving a CCEA Level 1 Qualification in Understanding Business Enterprise.
You will be provided with one to one mentoring with an experienced business advisor in areas such as:
• Financial Planning

• CV design / development
• Searching for further education courses or other relevant training

• Aged 16 or over
• Legally able to reside and work in the UK
