Catherine Henderson, a mum of five with a passion for photography took part in the most recent Exploring Enterprise Programme which took place at CIDO Innovation Centre and took away with her both the confidence and knowledge to set up her own business. Catherine is currently in the process of setting up her own photography business, Dimples and Beyond Photography. Prior to joining the programme Catherine, who didn’t come from a business background, had dedicated the past several years of her life to raising her children. It’s so inspiring to see how much she’s achieved already since completing the programme.
If you’ve ever dreamt of having your own business but aren’t really sure what’s involved in setting up or running a business, or if you’d just like some help getting back into employment, Exploring Enterprise could be the programme for you. Registration is completely free. You’ll receive mentoring and training at a pace tailored to your needs and you’ll also have the opportunity to work towards a qualification in Understand Business Enterprise. You’ll receive one to one mentoring with an experienced business adviser in areas including marketing, financial planning and an introduction to HMRC. For those wishing to get back into employment we can offer support with CV design, job search and assistance in how to complete job applications.
We have now opened registration for the next programme due to take place at CIDO Innovation Centre, Craigavon this October. For information including eligibility and dates please contact Kirsty.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 028 3839 6520.
