Enterprise Training


We offer training for people starting their own business or who have just set up their own business.

The initial information session with our Enterprise Officers is an overview and introduction to give participants practical information that will help you run your business.

This initial information session is supplemented by 6 weekly Enterprise Training courses which provide greater detail on topics such as business planning, taxation, self-assessment, cashflow, pricing, marketing and research for your business.

Feedback from our participants is very positive.  They tell us that they enjoy the opportunity to:

  • Receive practical knowledge on commencing self-employment

You will have access to our Start Your Own Business training which is delivered by our specialist mentors in the following areas:
