Working for yourself isn’t for everyone but for some there’s no looking back!
If you’re thinking about starting a business of your own or you have an idea for a new project or would like to learn more about what's involved, we’re here to help. Shaping your idea is crucial - giving some much needed time to invest in yourself and in your idea is a great start in making it happen!
Make it in Morecambe gives you the chance to meet others that are also looking for a new challenge and start to think about new possibilities too. It will help you to develop some important key transferable skills and learning experiences that will help you turn your ideas into reality.
Before signing you up for anything we’ll take the time to meet up, register your interest and make sure you get the support that is right for you. Each programme comes with a workbook for you to complete throughout the programme. We have two courses (each 6 weeks long): Eliemental - Skills For Enterprise and an Introduction to Product Development. In addition we have devised a bespoke package of additional support including Peer Support groups, Coaching and Mentoring and access to Skills Lab sessions based on participant needs.
Skills for Enterprise:
A 6 week programme helping you explore ideas for a new project or refine an existing one. In small, supportive groups you will develop problem solving skills, confidence, communication and creative thinking and unpick the next steps ready to make your ideas happen.
Introduction to Creative Product Development - a 6 week practical creative product development course. In small groups you will work with our team generating ideas for new products and gain transferable skills and experience discovering first hand what’s involved in turning ideas into reality when developing new products.
