More about the course
The aim of the course is to inspire the students to think different, think big and think bold about what they can achieve in life. It will provide the students with an accredited Certificate in Entrepreneurship and the development of their own business plan. At the start of the course and throughout each week, real life challenges will be set for the student to work through. This begins on day one and will involve the student becoming CEO of a made up small business that has been failing for some time.
As CEO, the student will be responsible for identifying its failings and working to turn it around. Through the duration of the course, Industry experts and in-house trainers will work with the students to guide them through each challenge. Each session will consist of two parts, with the first comprising of a workshop led by the guest presenter. The second part will focus on completing the course content and support needed on the student’s own business plan.
This course will target existing customers of Evolve Housing + Support, or those who have recently moved on from our services but have expressed an interest in setting up their own business.
