Do you dream of working for yourself? Do you have a burning business idea that just won’t go away? Then our business start-up course can help you turn your dream into a reality.
Across eight sessions we’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide to planning and launching a business. Covering everything from company registration to product development, we’ll help you identify routes to market, show you how to manage your finances and market your services. We’ll teach you how to get started on the road to business success.
Led by tutors with decades of business experience, our course is perfect for anyone who is bored at work, has a desire to be their own boss, or those keen to find a way back to a rewarding, or more flexible, career after being away from the workplace.
We’ve already helped many small businesses get off the ground, from street food stalls to interior designers. You could be next.
