The ‘Big 13’ Enterprise Skills training programme is designed to educate and enhance young people’s understanding of the skills needed to be successful in business and/or employment.  We offer a variety of training sessions which encourage young people to think about the skills they already possess and how these can be beneficial to the world of work.  Activities and plans around the ‘Big 13’ Enterprise Skills will be engaging, challenging and also enjoyable.
