Self-Employment Assistance is a program funded by the Australian Federal Government aimed at assisting people to explore the opportunities of self-employment as an alternative to gaining full time work. It allows people to choose the support that best fits their needs to run a successful small business and will replace the New Business Assistance with NEIS program.

The ‘Exploring Self-Employment’ Workshops are designed to give you a taste of entrepreneurship, self-employment and support those that have a business idea or dream of being their own boss.

The workshops will cover 6 key topics to give you an appreciation of how to start your own business and whether entrepreneurship is a viable career path for you. Contact us for more information about workshop start dates and locations or register your interest online.
