The event was well attended with representatives from 20 colleges in the region.

YPEF have invested in enterprise in further education as this is vital to enable young people to consider self-employment as a viable career option and gain both the life skills and experience which employers currently demand.

The event was held on Friday 20 November, the last day of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009, led by Enterprise UK.
