ilab at UQ will be hosting a professional development opportunity for staff and students about the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme otherwise known as NEIS. NEIS Provider Sarina Russo will run a 45minute information session at 2:00pm (Building 41) on Tuesday 13th of December on the scheme to help those not in employment build their own business.
The session is for:
- UQ Academic staff
- UQ Professional staff
- UQ Final year students
- Recent UQ graduates
The information session available to both UQ staff and students will highlight the alternative career path of students building their own businesses.
More about NEIS
NEIS is a government funded program that has been operating for over 30 years. It is delivered by a network of 21 providers (one of which locally is Sarina Russo) who provide individualised help for job seekers to become self-employed business owners. This program is appropriate for students about to graduate or post graduation not in work. We believe by hosting this workshop it will provide students with another option for alternative career pathways with support and further education upon graduation.
NEIS provides job seekers with:
- accredited small business training and business mentoring for up to 52 weeks
- income support for up to 39 weeks (NEIS Allowance) and NEIS Rental Assistance for up to 26 weeks (if eligible)
- personalised mentoring and support from a NEIS provider in the first year of the new business to help a job seeker put their business idea into practice.
We look forward to seeing you on the day!
