Mentor Training Programme

In July we start a three session training programme to train mentors to work long term with the women on the start up course, Roots & Shoots.

This course costs £750, but with support from funding from the Co-operative bank  we can offer fully funded places to those who commit to developing a long term mentor relationship with one of the start-ups.

The training programme will take place at The Women and Enterprise Hub, 6-0-2 Alston House, White Cross, Lancaster.

Dates for the training are July 5th and 19th and September 6th, 9.30 am and 12.30 pm.
