Are you a budding entrepreneur with a fabulous business idea?

Barnsley College’s Enterprise department is home to the iTrust initiative, a joint venture with Barnsley Chronicle and The Business Village which supports students interested in starting up a business in Barnsley.

Students who choose to receive support from iTrust have access to an array of information and guidance including mentoring from the College’s Enterprise team, The Prince’s Trust, industry specialists and employers. The scheme can also provide students with a start-up grant of up to £250 to launch a new business.
