WCD invites tenders from suitably qualified organisations and individuals to deliver a Trainee Entrepreneur Programme in Mullingar from March 2018 to August 2018
The Trainee Entrepreneur Programme is a special DEASP Community Employment Scheme, aimed at delivering a business development programme to unemployed people with a business idea, and is part of the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme for 2018 - 2022.
The course will be run for one full day per week over 24 weeks with 18 participants, with setting and monitoring of assigned tasks for participants to work on over the remaining 12 hours of their week outside of programme contact time, to develop the participants’ business idea.
It is expected that participants will progress to developing a business supported by the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance administered by the Dept. of Employment Affairs & Social Protection. It is required that the successful tender will have extensive experience in delivering enterprise training to the target group.
