Business support – Get involved in the BSEEN programme
Private Sector support from local businesses is pivotal to BSEEN’s success. The knowledge, experience and guidance offered through one to one mentoring, email contact and talks will be invaluable to participants. It will help them to grow their business efficiently, and prepare them for the challenges ahead. BSEEN is therefore seeking assistance from small to large businesses from any sector to offer support in some way to help develop students’ and graduates’ skills and knowledge.
