Learn how to turn your passion into a real business. Tree Shepherd is proud to announce a new series of our highly regarded Start Your Own Enterprise programme being delivered at locations across Lambeth in 2016.

If you are on benefits and have found it difficult to find a job, being self-employed could be the answer and we are here to make sure you get it right.

Courses are already funded, unless your household income is above £22,000.

You’ll learn everything you need to put a basic business plan in place including sales and marketing, finance, presentation skills, people management, networking and all the nuts and bolts of registering a business. On graduating you’ll join the Lambeth Forest Enterprise Network. Members benefit from free events, business clinics, business incubation, new trade and collaborative working opportunities.
