IPSE recognises that with so many career options available to young people, providing them with up to date information on all opportunities can be challenging. An increasing number of young people are starting up their own businesses and freelancing whilst studying, or shortly after. Yet there is less information available on pursuing this way of working compared to full-time employment. As experts in self-employment, freelancing, consulting and contracting, IPSE is here to help HE and FE institutions support young people who are considering this independent way of working.
