KOGS first partnered up with JFMA back in 2019 to pilot a small scale project for positive steps. The criteria was specifically for under 16s but the sheer amount of interest from 16-25 year olds who were not in any kind of education or training was massive.

In order to accommodate this new cohort KOGS set about seeking out funding to offer a women in enterprise project. The ESF funding was a perfect match and we received the first tranche of funding in 2021.

The concept of the project is to provide high quality accredited training in all things beauty along with the added benefit of KOGS accredited empowerment, self confidence and self esteem master classes and access to other KOGS services such as 121 coaching, counselling and therapy.

The take up has been a great success and we have successfully secured funding 3 times to run this program each time adding more and more beauty elements and providing the women with wrap around support.

KOGS are really proud of the women that have taken part so far and although the ESF funding has now closed we are confident the project will run again in autumn 2022.

Spaces are by application only and fill up quickly. We do hold a reserve list so if this project sounds like something for you please contact us to be added to the list. Professionals wanting to refer please use the contact form on the website to discuss.
