A series of new business seminars has been announced alongside a significant part-funding package from the European Social Fund to boost businesses across Cornwall.

The suite of 11, one-day seminars and funding has been announced by Truro and Penwith College as part of its business support package.

Starting on Thursday April 28 and running until the end of July, the college is offering multiple opportunities to attend many of the seminars in areas that are considered to be key in supporting businesses as they manage the impacts of Covid-19 and the Brexit transition with subjects including; Change Management, Developing Talent, Assertiveness and Difficult Conversations, Coaching and Practical Training Skills to name a few.

Funding is available through the college’s range of projects that are part-funded by the European Social Fund, providing both individuals and employers 50% funding towards the cost of the seminars.

Paul Keene, deputy team leader and leadership & management trainer at Truro and Penwith College commented: “The college is delighted to announce its revised and holistic offer of one-day business seminars that tackle the areas our professional development learners often need additional support in.

“Many of our learners find making time to learn a challenge and the one-day seminar options are proving increasingly popular, either as a one-off skills boosting session or to further enhance one of the College’s ILM Leadership and Management qualifications.”
