Young people in Merseyside are being given the chance to push their career into the next gear and take the trip of a lifetime with the launch of a new traineeship programme, #runtheworld.
Designed and delivered by Liverpool based MD productions and Alder Training, #runtheworld will see learners develop the skills required to gain employment or start their own business, receiving tailored training and learning from a range of leading UK entrepreneurs, whilst planning the delivery of a worldwide sporting event.
Aimed at school leavers aged 16-18 who are not currently in education, employment or training, the 18-week course will develop learners into future business leaders, plus they will gain qualifications in Maths and English.
Those who show the highest levels of commitment, attendance and motivation will put themselves in pole position to secure a fully-funded place on the international trip, where they will see their work brought life on one of the biggest stages in the world.
During the programme, the cohort of budding entrepreneurs will have the chance to work on their very own business venture. They will then pitch their ideas to a panel of business leaders as part of a large-scale celebration event in March 2019.
The learner behind the winning proposal will receive an intensive support package and the resources to launch their very own business to the corporate world.
The course is enrolling now, and is delivered from The Tapestry Building, 68-76 Kempston Street, Liverpool, L3 8HL.
