IDEA GENERATION SESSIONS AND THE BURSARY
The Idea Generation Sessions provide young people with the opportunity to utilise their enterprise skills and to have a go at setting-up their own business. There is support available to think of ideas and to develop a business plan in order to apply for the Llwyddo'n Lleol Bursary. The activity can be accredited to a BTEC Level 1 in Workskills.
The Entrepreneurship Units are a series of units that are accredited to a Level 2 BTEC Award in Workskills. The units provide an opportunity for young people to learn more about entrepreneurship and to develop entrepreneurial skills that employers are looking for. During studying towards the Level 2 Award, young people will learn how to plan an enterprise; run an enterprise and how to produce a product. Opportunities will also be provided to meet local business people that have started their own business.

During the events young people will meet people who work or run their own business within the sectors; learn what qualifications and experiences you need to work in the sector and the variety of opportunties each sector can offer.
