Considering self employment?
To start a successful business you need a wide range of skills and knowledge. In fact, to have the best possible chance of success, the best thing anyone considering starting a business can do is get some form of training, information or advice. Some 15% of our clients who are unemployed or facing redundancy actively consider self employment as a career option.
Our Practical Skills for Business Course is an eight-day course for people looking to become self-employed or to start a new business. It is designed to take you through all aspects of starting and running a business.
