A new programme has been launched to help people in the Causeway Coast and Glens borough to start their own business or find new jobs and training opportunities.

Exploring Enterprise3 (EE3p) is being delivered by Enterprise Northern Ireland, the umbrella body for Northern Ireland’s Local Enterprise Agencies.

The project is part funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund 2014-2020 Investment for Jobs and Growth Programme, the Department for Employment & Learning, Enterprise Northern Ireland, Local Enterprise Agencies and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

This new initiative will provide support to unemployed or economically inactive people across Northern Ireland.

It is designed to fill a gap in the market for those who don’t have the opportunities to take part in training or lack the skills to find employment.

The programme provides 143 courses delivered by a network of 29 Local Enterprise Agencies.

Gordon Gough, Chief Executive of Enterprise Northern Ireland commented: “Following on from the success of our previous two programmes, we are delighted to be able to launch EE3p.

“This new programme will run for three years, with one to one business mentoring and a QCF Level 1 in Understanding Business Enterprise qualification awarded upon successful completion of the programme.”

1738 participants achieved the CCEA level 2 Understanding Business Enterprise qualification in EE2p;
