Bradford Entrepreneur Spring Programme
In a joint venture between Project Remake, Capita plc, The University of Bradford and British Libraries we are offering 12 placements for formally incarcerated people on our spring entrepreneurship course starting 24th May 2023. Following successful completion of the programme, there is also an opportunity for course graduates to undertake a 12-week paid work placement at Capita plc.
The course runs for one evening a week, on Wednesdays 6:30-8:30, over eight weeks. There is also a weekly session with the business mentor and advisors to work alongside the main course (date/time TBC).
The course is online via Zoom
We would like formerly incarcerated people to apply for places on the course and are keen to attract people who have a business idea or some idea of self-employment or training that they would like to pursue.
In the first instance, those applying will need to fill in a simple application form and a declaration form. A short ‘elevator pitch’ task will also need to be completed prior to starting the course.
Please note as we work in schools and businesses, we are unable to accept applicants with unspent convictions related to arson or terrorism, or with sexual offences.
