From education to employment

Enterprise Roadshow at Borders College

March has most certainly been an enterprising month at @BordersCollege. From panel discussions to enterprise marketplaces and workshops, our events were designed to inspire and engage students in all things enterprise. 

Most recently we were joined by Young Enterprise Scotland, South of Scotland Enterprise, Business Gateway and Princes Trust who spent a few hours chatting to students about the support they can offer to young people – which includes everything from building basic skills in entrepreneurship to providing start-up grants and mentoring support.

Young Enterprise Scotland’s ‘Bridge to Business’ team were also on hand to deliver a series of enterprise workshops to students.

If you think Bridge to Business could support the learning of students you teach, please get in touch and we can look to arrange some sessions for your class. Enterprise is not just for those looking to start a business – these engaging and interactive workshops enable students to build the essential skills needed to become work-ready.
