Saturday Start Up courses for career changers

Working Monday to Friday but wish you were your own boss? Ready to set up your own enterprise but not sure how to start? Looking for some business support but short on time?

If this sounds like you, read on…

Tree Shepherd has supported over 800 people since 2013 to explore their business ideas and to develop them into a business plan and, in 40% of cases, a company has started trading. In that time, we have delivered over 70 training courses and workshops, such as our 8-week Start Your Own Enterprise programme.

Now, due to popular demand, we are offering for the first time a part-time intensive programme at weekends to help you turn your business idea into reality. Participants on our Saturday Start Up programme will get:

  • 4 half-day group sessions to help take you from business idea to business plan
  • a 1-to-1 mentoring session with one of our friendly, experienced business advisors
  • free membership of the Forest Enterprise Network (an umbrella organisation of local traders which helps Lambeth-based start-ups collaborate and grow)

The cost of the full Saturday Start Up programme is £350, with concessions available for learners on benefits or low income. The course will run on 4 consecutive Saturdays starting on 17th June. This special intensive course will be limited to 15 places only, so go to to register your interest or call us for more information on 020 3697 1541.
