Enterprise Support Ltd (BES) is a successful social enterprise; a Dept. of BIS registered enterprise agency and a company limited by guarantee.
BES holds quality and continuous improvement at the forefront of all of its business activities. Our systems incorporate a range of recognised standards which include Matrix, and Customer First. In 2004 through an ALI inspection (now Ofsted) BES had the distinction of being awarded the highest level of grade one for its training under Management and Professional.
All of our client facing staff are trained in either level 3 IAG or are SFEDI accredited, dependant upon the activity undertaken, and the self employed associates are chosen from a rigorous approved supplier register. Part of this criterion ensures that they conform to the SFEDI Accreditation process which regularly monitors their CPD. BES is also the West Midlands licensed Centre for SFEDI Accreditation. Building on the quality of our organisation, BES has recently been awarded the Prowess Flagship Status.
BES is committed to addressing the diversity issues and our company ethos is to provide as many people as possible with the tools to identify their enterprising skills, and how to use these skills within the working environment including investigating self employment as a career option.
BES considers its support services to be 'gender friendly' and as a member of the national organisation 'Prowess' and a Flagship status provider, contributes to the economy and local cultural environment by providing a full support service for women's enterprise including women from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
In 2006, BES won the regional heat of the Enterprising Britain competition by showing its success in engaging with clients from the diverse BAME communities in Burton upon Trent, working with young people, offenders and ex-offenders and supporting the creation of social enterprises.
BES also works with offenders both in Prison and upon their release into the community to help them recognise their own enterprising skills. We are currently working in 10 prisons in and around the West Midlands area.
