Centerprise is a dedicated
enterprise and incubation centre based at the Neath campus
providing a focal point for entrepreneurship within the college and
supporting the college strap-line ‘More than just an education’.
The main aim is to encourage involvement in enterprise activity and
to promote the creation of successful new enterprises.
The project works in
partnership with support providers and local companies to ensure
that learners are given opportunities to develop entrepreneurial
skills and attitudes and to engage in activities that will provide
invaluable experiences alongside a working knowledge of business
and the needs of employers.
Centerprise provides a
vibrant and professional working environment that aims to inspire
learners (and staff!) along with access to a range of facilities
and support. The centre houses a creative area (The Thought Bubble)
which encourages creative thinking and the development of ideas,
along with a hot desk office where learners can drop in and work on
enterprise projects or early stage enterprise ideas.
Five shared office spaces
are available for learners past and present who are ready to start
up new ventures, along with a professional meeting room, access to
a large training room and ICT facilities. Learners will be
supported in developing the necessary skills and experience to help
develop realistic and sustainable businesses.
Drop in sessions have been
arranged for Neath Port Talbot College students who are thinking of
starting up and running their own business. For further information please click here.
