Engage and Excel
In 2020, the PNE Enterprise team received funding to deliver ‘Engage and Excel’, in partnership with the Women Empowering Women Network. The programme will give 48 BME and migrant women in Newcastle and South Tyneside the opportunity to explore and enter self-employment and to build employability skills.
