Business Start-Up Support
We are able to offer Business start up and Enterprise training to NVQ level 3 – accredited with OCR (we are an OCR Accredited Training centre).
This is for people who are in employment or are actively setting up their own business/ becoming self employed. We draw on our 13 years experience in delivering successful support to people wishing to set up in business or become self employed using SFEDI accredited business advisors with a long track record of success in helping set up, develop and expand small and medium enterprises and sole traders.
We have the required Matrix and Customer First quality accreditation. We have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs successfully start up in business, many obtaining relevant NVQs in Business Start Up.
We have also been able to help them develop business plans and introduce them to both High street banks and sources of social business funds such as Prime loans. In addition in the past we helped over 1100 small and medium enterprises develop and expand their businesses through our million pound ERDF/ GOL government funded programme Enterprising East End. For further details of our NVQ training please visit our Training page.
We are also able to provide you with on-line business start up support and training backed up with one-to-one support at a subsidised market rate – for further details contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
