The 90% Government funded Leadership and Management training programme for SME leaders is heading to St. Austell, Cornwall this October.
After a successful first year of the Help to Grow: Management training programme, UWE Bristol are scheduled to head to St. Austell, Cornwall this October to deliver the course to Cornish business leaders.
Help to Grow: Management is a 12-week practical training programme for senior managers of small and medium enterprises that aims to help boost performance, resilience, and long-term growth of their businesses. Delivered through a blend of online and face-to-face learning, the course covers strategies for growth and innovation, leading high-performance teams, digital adoption, as well as financial management and responsible business practices.
- Develop a tailored business growth plan
- Access to 10 hours of one-to-one mentor support
- Regular peer group calls
- Join other SME leaders through both local and national alumni networks.
UWE Bristol Help to Grow: Management Alumni, Robert Ogden of Renewable Exchange commented: “The programme gives you a very broad coverage of a lot of relevant business topics. For me personally, the mentoring sessions were a great way to take the entire course material, distil down what I found most relevant to Renewable Exchange and then turn these into actionable changes.”
Help to Grow: Management is 90% subsidised by the government and costs just £750.
In their first year of delivery, UWE Bristol guided over one hundred SME leaders through the programme. Those completing the programme have benefitted from the expertise of UWE module facilitators – experts at Bristol Business School who combine academic and real-life business experience.
UWE Bristol’s St. Austell cohort is scheduled to start on 4th October 2022. Other locations across the South West are also available, including Exeter in January 2023.
