Women’s Entrepreneurship – W.E.B (Women Exploring Business Programme)
*Statistics from the Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship 2021
Have you considered owning your own business?
Would you like a better ‘work-life balance?’
Are you looking to supplement your family’s income?
Threshold understands that for many women, self-employment may provide new opportunities in terms of money, family and careers.
Funded by NatWest, the WEB programme was devised to support women contemplating self-employment and is open to women wishing to explore entrepreneurship.
What is it?
WEB stands for ‘Women Exploring Business. It is designed to inspire women to set up their businesses, to become ‘entrepreneurs. We recognise that women face barriers in relation to their gender. That’s why we are offering bespoke training for women only – underpinned by two Agored Cymru accredited qualifications that culminate in a Level 2 Award.
How does it work?
WEB will offer tailored and flexible pre-vocational training, activities, workshops and back-to-work support designed to help women into self-employment, employment and further skills training.
What’s in it for me?
Throughout the programme, you will have opportunities to develop a hands-on approach to building your business, explore ideas and aspirations, and develop confidence, leadership skills, resilience and resourcefulness. And you can achieve a Level 2 Award qualification accredited by Agored Cymru.
What if I decide afterwards that I don’t want to be self-employed after all?
That’s okay. The programme is about exploration. The more you learn about business, the more information you will have to consider whether it is right for you, whether the timing is right or if your circumstance will allow it etc. The programme provides plenty of opportunities for acquiring transferable skills that are sought after by employers.
I’m still not sure. Where can I get more information?
We’re happy to discuss the programme in detail or any concerns or issues you may have. We’re looking forward to meeting you on the course.
