Exploring Enterprise II Programme Welcomed
Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has welcomed the Exploring Enterprise II programme announced today to give unemployed people the opportunity and skills to become self employed.
Mr McElduff stated,
“It is important that people who find themselves unemployed are given opportunities to find meaningful employment.
“This initiative announced today will give 2000 people the chance to get the skills to become self employed through an accredited course over a three year period.
“Many people have the ability to become self employed but lack the knowledge and confidence and these courses are designed to give those people the ability to be successful in their own business or trade.
“It is however important that this scheme is rolled out in a way that will maximise the number of people who can benefit from it so I am calling on the Minister to ensure that it is properly advertised and promoted.
