Are you innovative and creative? All businesses need enterprising employees to drive their organisations forward, to have ideas and initiatives to instigate growth and to ensure that businesses survive in this fast changing world – especially in Cornwall.
Having enterprising skills can equip you to be a real asset to an organisation, as well as giving you the basis on which to develop your entrepreneurial skills for running your own enterprise in the future.
Enterprise is a key government focus and is set to form an important part of the UK’s global economic status both now and in the future.
Enterprise skills give you a fantastic progression pathway into a number of roles throughout an organisation, and the skills you can develop are transferable into all businesses.
As part of your course you will be required to carry out Work experience and/ or an Industry Placement. For Further details click here.
