The Access Enterprise project aims at the social and economic inclusion of members of marginalized group through the creation of entrepreneurial opportunities for them. In order to achieve this, the project develops learning resources which support the professional development of new and existing Business Advisers/Educators working with people from marginalized groups (such as young people, people with disabilities, migrants, people from social deprived communities and women). Access Enterprise does this by developing training packages which promote partnership working between Business Advisers/Educators and people from marginalized groups. By creating training programmes which are truly co-produced Access Enterprise will develop resources which can be used by a range of Business Advisers/coaches and are relevant and meaningful to their work and the diverse individuals they support.
