Emerging Enterprise Programmes

North Star is experienced in providing ‘Emerging Enterprise Programmes’  to aid the unemployed to start new businesses, return to education or training or gain employment. In our experience those regarded as ‘long term unemployed’  have very real difficulties returning to the workforce as entrepreneurs or employees not so much through lack of training or education, important as these factors are,  but through issues such as low self-esteem, lack of confidence and a lack of what are known as the soft skills.

In addition to providing the essential key skills to start your own business, using coaching and mentoring techniques and drawing on vast experience of running successful enterprises, North Star works with candidates to develop their emotional intelligence, increase personal confidence, improve interpersonal communication skills and prepare them for work, education /training or employment.

Our tutors have already operated successful emerging enterprise type programmes, in conjunction with local Universities in community settings in some of the most economically and socially deprived areas of the UK. Many of the participants (over 75%) completing the said programmes progressed into self-employment, work or education. These three week , full-time programmes, with follow on business coaching and mentoring,  are provided free of charge to participants and are usually funded via local authorities or central Government in conjunction with third level institutions.
