The 12-week programme offers senior business leaders a practical management training programme, with 1-to-1 mentorship, delivered across the UK by leading business schools accredited by the Small Business Charter.
It costs just £750 and is 90% subsidised by the government as part of its Plan for Jobs to help businesses to drive growth and create jobs. It is aimed at senior leaders of small and medium businesses. Charities are not eligible for the programme but all other business types are. Your business can trade in any sector of the economy but must have been operating for more than one year and have 5 to 249 employees.
There are a wide range of modules available, including financial management, strategies for growth and innovation, leading high-performance teams, and approaches to digital adoption. The course is designed to be manageable alongside full-time work. By the end of the programme participants will develop a tailored business growth plan and will have access to an extensive alumni network.
