The Well offers free, enterprise training for new business start ups. The aim of The Well is to enable individuals to develop the basic personal, social and core skills to develop and run a small enterprise. The Well provides business training for adults, to develop personal, core and enterprise skills for self-employment and start up their own business. The Well, in partnership with Jobcentre Plus and The New Curiosity Shop, helps individuals develop untapped, business skills, and plan for a business start up.
On completion of the enterprise training course, learners will have developed a Business Plan that can be presented to either a Social Enterprise Network or Business Gateway. Participants will also have evaluated their personal capacity to develop and manage a new enterprise and analysed their need for additional development and support.
