Help to Grow: Management

The Help to Grow: Management Course is for business owners, leaders, and senior managers to help boost the performance and resilience of your business. It runs over 12 weeks and includes online and face-to-face sessions, 1 to 1 mentoring and peer networking.

With just one session a week, it is designed to fit around existing work and personal commitments. You will finish the course ready to lead on the delivery of increased profitability, innovation and growth.

Give your business a competitive edge

Join 30,000 leaders of small or medium sized businesses taking part in a practical management training programme delivered by University of Gloucestershire and other word-class business schools, accredited by the Small Business Charter.

The programme is 90% funded by the government so you only pay £750. Delivered in partnership with Small Business Charter, this course will run at our Gloucestershire Business School.

Management is delivered by accomplished small business and enterprise experts from University of Gloucestershire, with the support of leading industry figures and experienced entrepreneurs.

The programme is provided nationally by participating business schools that have been accredited by the Small Business Charter, an award that recognises the high quality, tailored guidance they provide to support small business and their local economy.

The consortium brings a huge amount of expertise and experience to support you and your business.
