For Entrepreneurs Only

FEO signed up to the pledge to support the development of employability skills. They did this as they are passionate about local people finding and progressing in their careers in the local economy and their focus is promoting self employment and entrepreneurship as a career option.  Whilst FEO has signed up to two of the pledges which are delivered on centrally, throughout their membership all six of the pledges are fulfilled many times over.

Signing up to pledge will benefit FEO members by giving them the opportunity to inspire and encourage others. It will benefit the wider community by reducing unemployment which in turn will lead to a more positive and aspirational workforce who is earning money that in turn will be spent it in the local economy. FEO promote entrepreneurship and employability skills in all that they do and you can find out more by visiting their website, signing up for a monthly newsletter, and following on Facebook and Twitter.

For anyone else considering signing up to the pledge they say, “Only sign up to the campaign if you intend to actively support it – everyone needs to help to make a difference.”
