Naturally Enterprising is a project created by The Enterprise Centre to provide good quality and recognised Enterprise and Earth Education activities within our centre set in the Lancashire countryside near Tottington, Bury. Our purpose is to capacity build and develop confidence for those in need. We do this by encouraging individuals to access the many benefits of nature, whilst also contributing to the development of the green spaces within their local communities’.

Situated in the heart of The Kirklees Valley Trail, The Naturally Enterprising Centre is a new, safe, purpose built Lodge set in 20 acres of woodland. It has a 15-metre training room\\workshop, 4 stables to house our equine therapy ponies and a small office for private coaching and one to one mentoring. The Naturally Enterprising Centre has been built on small grants and many hours of volunteering.

The team at The Enterprise Centre run a range of activities which encourage the development of enterprise skills as well as emotional management. We also run wellbeing programmes to provide our clients with a wide range of skills that will take them forward to their future success.

Courses

Step-Up To Success

The Step-Up To Success Programme helps to develop positive mental and physical attitudes through a series of workshops, events and experiences that are very different from traditional learning practices.
For each individual, their programme will be identified with one of our trained coaches in a private 1-to-1 sessions during which they will design a personalized learning programme. This identifies possible strengths to build upon to overcome any barriers they may have. The delivery of the programme will consist of a mix of very practical small group sessions in personal management, self-development, confidence building, enterprise skills, photography and land management.

There are three different Step-Up To Success Programmes that may last up to 10, 16 or 21 weeks and It is up to the customer to decide which one of these best suits them.

Leadership

We can provide 1-to-1 mentoring and support sessions to help clients to grow and be successful.
The 1-to-1 sessions will be tailored directly to the specific needs of the client and a programme of bespoke
advice and support is subsequently identified. Our staff and associates are all successful in their chosen fields and
a mentor will be identified whose experience and skills are most relevant to your needs and your stage of development.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy, also known as equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a method that includes equine activities or an equine environment to promote physical, occupational, and emotional growth in persons with mental or behavior imbalances. Since horses have similar behaviors to humans, such as social and responsive behaviors, it is easy for the individuals to create a connection with the horse.
This results in allowing individuals to grow by establishing trust, communicating effectively, managing emotional responses, setting and maintaining safe and appropriate behavior patterns, developing leadership skills and growing confidence.

Naturally Enterprising uses equine assisted learning to help train and develop their clients. Many of the skills we teach in our sessions translate well into the business world and because the environment is so different it will help our clients think more creatively.

Don’t just take our word for it… Our courses work!
