Meath Partnership is offering young people a unique opportunity to enhance their entrepreneurial skills and launch new careers in self employment. The “Under My Wing” programme, which commences in early March, is an exceptional entrepreneurial apprenticeship that exposes participants to the real-life experiences of starting-up and running a small business. It is open to young persons under 25 years of age who are graduates of degree or diploma programmes and who have been in receipt of Jobseekers Allowance or Jobseekers Benefit for 12 months.
This programme focuses heavily on the practice rather than the theory of self-employment and setting up a business. Through intensive mentoring and coaching, support will be provided in formulating, refining and developing ideas into viable business opportunities. Practical workshops, master classes from experienced entrepreneurs, 24 hour access to on-line resources and unique interaction with Meath based micro, small and medium-sized enterprises are mainstays of this programme. Participants will compile comprehensive individualised business plans, build fully functioning business websites and develop their network of contacts through membership of the Elevation Network whilst also achieving a FETAC Level 6 Major Award in Business Management.
All these support approaches will combine to enable participants emerge from the programme exceptionally well positioned to launch their new enterprises. It is worth noting that Social Welfare payments may also be retained for up to two years after business has commenced.
This is an excellent opportunity to for qualifying young persons to hone their entrepreneurial skills and to enhance their business acumen. It is a chance to help build a vibrant, successful economy by becoming one of a new generation of start-up stars.
