Two Government backed programmes – Help to Grow: Management and Help to Grow: Digital – are designed to help business leaders learn new skills, reach more customers and boost profits.
Delivered locally by Teesside University and Northumbria University, Help To Grow: Management includes 50 hours of in-depth training, 1:1 business mentoring, and the opportunity to grow your business.
The 12-week programme requires a business contribution of costs just £750 and is 90% subsidised by the government. You can take part around your existing work commitments and access learning through a blend of online and face-to-face sessions.
Aimed at senior leaders in small and medium sized 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. You will hear from inspirational business leaders and learn alongside local peers, with access to a national alumni network.
At the end of the programme, you will develop a tailored business growth plan to increase productivity and grow your revenue, and help take your business to the next level.
From December, businesses across the UK will be able to access free and impartial online support on how technology can boost their business performance.
The online support service will be joined by a voucher scheme, where businesses will be able to apply for a discount of up to 50% on the costs of approved software, worth up to £5000.
With many businesses needing to adapt the way they do business during the pandemic, the Help to grow: Digital programme will help them build on their new ways of working.
