Careers & Enterprise Hub

The Careers & Enterprise is built to help young people prepare for the future, whether they want to explore their options in further education or training, find a career that suits their skills and personality, or set up their own business! 

Our Careers & Enterprise provision started in 2017 with the highly successful Smart Futures project.

Trade Zone

We are working with the European Social Fund to help 16-24 year olds in North Manchester develop your project management and entrepreneurial skills. 

Here are a few ways we can help you on the Trade Zone project:

  • 3+months of one-to-one support to bring your business idea to life;
  • Free business workshops with Entrepreneurs Unlocked;
  • Meet and talk to successful self-employed professionals;
  • An opportunity to test and trade your products and services at an upcoming Business Expo. 

Even if you don’t have a business idea at the moment, we have some small projects to get you started! Our support is flexible to work with you online, or socially distanced in the Youth Zone.
