Our second Supported Self Employment Academy started in Croydon during November in association with Status Employment.
Following the tremendous success of our first academy Croydon Council are supporting us to deliver a series of Academy’s over the coming months.
The academy focuses on supporting people with disabilities to start, run and grow a business. The courses bring people together in a safe space where they can learn about business and share ideas and challenges. The first academy was a great success with several students setting up successful businesses.
Yvonne Williams attended our first academy and set up Happy Feet while on the course, she said “with the support of these lovely people I’ve managed to overcome all my fears and get my Happy Feet calendars printed. I’m really enjoy selling them and meeting new people”
The academy runs one day a week for 5 weeks and covers all areas of running and growing a business. If you have a disability and live in the borough of Croydon and would like to get that business idea you’ve been dreaming about off the ground then please get in touch about our courses in 2020 on firstname.lastname@example.org
Status Employment are a wonderful organisation who assist people with disabilities and mental health problems in finding and retaining paid employment.
