Help to Grow: Management – Book your place now

It's not too late to book your place on the latest Help to Grow: Management course for SMEs in Gloucestershire.

The next course at Gloucestershire Business School at the University of Gloucestershire begins on November 23.

Aimed at small and medium businesses, the Help to Grow: Management course is run by business schools accredited by the Small Business Charter, and 90 per cent funded by the UK Government, meaning each attendee pays just £750.

The practically focused course runs across 12 modules in 12 weeks and features a blend of online sessions, face-to-face workshops, direct support from a specialist business mentor and peer to peer networking, all designed to help leaders grow their businesses.

Dr Emily Beaumont and Lynn Stacey from the programme in Gloucestershire talked to Punchline-Gloucester.com about how it can make a difference to SMEs in the county.

Dr Emily Beaumont from the University of Gloucestershire is the director for the programme in the county. She said: "It is designed and delivered by entrepreneurs and industry experts. It's a leadership course that provides time away from the challenges of running your own business to invest in leadership and how to take your busines to the next level.

"For £750, businesses get a quality curriculum and interaction with the Business School and other businesses.

"The real benefits are they can leave the programme with a growth plan to take them forward, but also with a strong and secure alumni network that they can continue to call upon beyond the programme."
