They all received mentoring, guidance and information on running a business through the college’s partnership with the Unloc Enterprise Academy on its E5 Programme.

The Unloc Enterprise Academy is run by social enterprise Unloc, which is based at the college and is led by former student and entrepreneur, Hayden Taylor.

Students sign up to a 12-week course in which they delve into the business world with mentoring from the Unloc team and entrepreneurs in the community.
