Description

The Holmesglen Exploring Self-Employment Workshops are being provided in conjunction with Our Place, Carlton.

Holmesglen offer the Exploring Self-Employment Workshops which are fully funded by the Federal Government under Workforce Australia. These Workshops will help you:
• Understand what’s involved in starting a business
• Generate, or validate a business idea and guide you on next steps
• Make an informed decision as to whether self-employment is right for you
• Begin working with an active business network and learn the importance of the “business ecosystem” to success
• Walk away with useful knowledge, tools and analysis that can guide your next steps

We understand some people may have children to pick up, and we will be able to accommodate this if you need to leave a little early.

Eligibility:
You need to be working or studying less than 25 hours a week on average, or on a Centrelink payment like JobSeeker or a Pension payment. You will need to complete an application form and provide proof of Identification to attend.
• The workshops are an approved activity for people who are receiving Centrelink payments, meaning you will accrue 20 points under the Points Based Activity System (PBAS) for each week you attend.
• You do not have to be on a Centrelink payment to participate in a workshop, but you will need to be working or studying less than 25 hours per week to be eligible to participate.
• Please remember to advise your Workforce Australia Employment Service if you are enrolling. We will also update the computer system to confirm your enrolment once we have your application approved.
