Bournemouth University Business School will deliver a government-backed Help to Grow: Management course for Dorset businesses.
Delivered by leading UK business schools accredited to the Small Business Charter, Help To Grow: Management includes 50 hours of in-depth training and 1:1 business mentoring to help businesses grow and innovate.
The 12-week programme is 90% subsidised by the government and so only costs £750. Businesses can take part around existing work commitments and access learning through a blend of online and face-to-face sessions.
Aimed at senior leaders in small and medium businesses, the course covers strategies for growth and innovation, leading high-performance teams and digital adoption, as well as financial management and responsible business practices. By the end of the programme, attendees will develop a tailored business growth plan to increase productivity and grow revenue.
There will also be opportunities to hear from inspirational business leaders and learn alongside local peers, with access to a national alumni network.
Small Business Minister Paul Scully said: “Seizing opportunity is what being a business leader is all about, and our Help to Grow Management Scheme gives entrepreneurs the chance to access the very best advice on how to innovate, reach new customers and boost profits.”
