Enterprise Junction: YOUR way into work programme

Sussex-based charity, Enterprise Junction, is launching a new training programme across East Sussex in January and February 2020 to support young people between the ages of 16 to 25 with a life-changing opportunity to start their own business or develop the skills and experience they need to move into employment.

Funded through The Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner's Community Safety Fund, Sussex Community Foundation and National Lottery Community Fund, the programme will run in Hastings, Eastbourne and Newhaven, and consists of four one-day courses together with one-to-one sessions with a mentor. The programme covers risks, rewards and legalities of self-employment, how to plan for success, easy to manage finance and social media marketing. Alongside this, participants will have a fantastic opportunity to use their own ideas to create a real-life money-making project.

Participants on the programme will benefit from increased levels of confidence and a clear focus and direction together with a realistic set of goals and targets. They will also increase their business knowledge and skills and learn about funding opportunities and how to access them.

If you are aged between 16 and 25 and would like to boost your business skills and learn more about self-employment then please apply by emailing or call Ruth on 07508 277371 for an informal chat about what is involved. No qualifications or experience are required to join the programme. For more information please visit
