New Adult Enterprise Centre has opened in Bath
Entrepreneurs wanting to turn an idea into a profitable business can now access expert advice and training.
A new Adult Enterprise Centre has been opened on Kingsmead Square thanks to City of Bath College and Curo.
The college has turned unused office space in Rosewell Court into a training and networking hub for new and existing entrepreneurs.
The centre also has a number of ‘enterprise stations’ available to rent to encourage people to create their own jobs rather than waiting to find them.

The centre was officially opened by Bath MP Don Foster earlier today.
He said: “Last year we saw a large number of new start-up businesses registered in the city and the new Bath Adult Enterprise Centre will further serve to support the needs of budding entrepreneurs.
“It’s fantastic that the City of Bath College and Curo have teamed up to offer even more localised support. So if you have an idea for a business, I’d urge you to make use of this fantastic opportunity and take the first steps towards becoming your own boss.”
Users of the centre will be able to work towards an Open College Network accredited Level 2 First Steps to Enterprise qualification or a selection from ten modules aimed at different stages of setting up, running and growing businesses.
The flexible learning course is run in conjunction with Adult Enterprise, which is a national partnership of learning and skills providers who provide entrepreneurship training.
City of Bath College Principal, Matt Atkinson, said the college remained focussed on the importance of enterprise to the local economy.
He said: “Building a culture of enterprise is as important as more and more people are interested in self-employment than ever before.”
