Partner update - WSX Enterprise

Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 15:13

WSX is a not-for-profit business support and employability company that provides practical, expert support that empowers entrepreneurs and businesses to create sustainable success. WSX is based in Aldershot, Hampshire.

We are very happy to announce that as of May 2021 we have the WSX SYU Hub space based in the Aldershot Enterprise Centre. We already welcomed two first learners Sasha and Telma who previously have attended one of our coaching sessions. Both of the learners are now running a successful hospitality business where they cook and sell the most delicious international dishes. We plan for more SYU learners to attend the Hub in the near future.

As of June WSX will work closely with the Camberley Youth Hub called The Workshop which is based in the county of Surrey. The Youth Hub is located in the shopping Centre and offers career guidance to young people aged 18 to 24. The Camberley Youth Hub has offered us a space to meet learners and to organise pop-ups for the Surrey branch of the WSX Speed You Up Hub. We are very excited to start working together! This is a great opportunity for us when engaging with young, unemployed people in the local community (Work Package 2).

WSX Enterprise has been invited to the official opening of the Hub on the 7th of June. Amongst the guests present at the opening there will be many representatives of the local community including colleagues from the Job Centre and the Mayor of the Surrey Heath region.

We have received a confirmation that in June we will deliver a SpeedYouUP introductory session to three learners at Treloar’ school in Alton, Hampshire. The school provides care, therapy and education for young people with physical disabilities.

At the beginning of June WSX will participate in the conference event at the Camberley Job Club in Surrey. During the event, we will have a chance to promote the Speed You Up project and meet with the local stakeholders.

In July this year over four busy days, WSX has been invited to provide introductory SYU workshop sessions for 80 students at the Regents Park School in Southampton. This will be a virtual Work Experience event in participation with the Hampshire County Council and local employers.

We are pleased to announce that will be delivering an introductory session at Cowplain school in Waterlooville, Hampshire in mid- July. We will be delivering a training session to 30 learners and brief them about the idea of self-employment and explore the benefits of SPEEDYouUP.

From September 2021 we will be working closely with the Hampshire County Council and deliver SPEEDYouUP programme to schools and individuals within the Rushmoore Young Entrepreneur Programme.
