Be your own boss

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.
