Invitation to tender

Westmeath Community Development are seeking tenders to deliver a Personal Development Programme for new Businesses established under the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance Scheme.

Since the start of 2012 we have assisted over 80 people to establish new businesses under the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance Scheme, operated in conjunction with  the Department of Social Protection. We provide a range of supports to new businesses, including access to business mentors and business coaches, access to County Enterprise Board training courses and access to loan finance in conjunction with other groups and credit unions.

However, we have also identified the need to provide further supports to these new entrepreneurs to assist them in dealing with the challenges that self employment brings.

The training will be for between 15-20 people. There is no specific course length and will depend on the course content. We are looking to start this course for early November.

The tender should outline the course content, location, duration and costs.

The closing date for receipt of tenders is 5 pm on Wednesday, October 24th 2012. For further information contact Dan Grehan on 044 9348571.
