SkillUp is funded by the Natwest Skills & Opportunities Fund and seeks to engage young people in social entrepreneurship.
As part of this project we have developed training to help individuals get an overview of how to be a social entrepreneur! To take the training online go to www.IARS.org.uk/training
The aim of the project will be to encourage young people to become social entrepreneurs as an alternative path to self-sustainability in the social sector. It will draw on models of best practice to train 100 young people via the e-course, to receive accreditation and be ready to become social entrepreneurs.
We will also work with young people to become Ambassadors in the local community and help promote, engage and encourage local stakeholders to link in with them. The outcome will be that some of these young people will report going on to be seen as more employable by local businesses, or have started their own business.
We are currently looking for young people to join our dedicated Youth Advisory Board to become Ambassadors. Training will be held this month! To apply, please send a CV and brief covering letter to Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org
