Description

The Women’s Enterprise Academy project arises from work that has been developing over recent years between Ashfield and Mansfield District Councils comprising seminars, workshops and networking opportunities.

A local consultation study concluded that the main barriers to women considering self employment as an option are lack of confidence, being risk averse, family commitments and a lack of necessary enterprising skills. This applied particularly to those women who had children and had never worked or those who had given up work to bring up their children. Accessing support to receive advice and guidance was clearly daunting. The study suggested that future support should be focused on women-only early stage support. The study recommended that support should concentrate on building confidence and skills development in order to encourage women to consider their future options.
