Broadland District Council – training for business start-ups

 Is 2017 the year to start your own business?

 Have you always dreamed about starting your own business but not sure where to start?

 Maybe you want to turn your hobby into a business or just want to be your own boss?

 A free programme is offered by Broadland District Council for all Broadland residents who want to find out more about self-employment.

The three hour Business Start-Up Workshop is designed to introduce you to the basic principles of starting a business, where you are also provided with a Business Start-Up Toolkit.

After attending, the follow-on Business Essentials Programme delves deeper into what to expect in starting and running your own business. The course shares knowledge and signposts you to additional resources.

Throughout and after each course, you will receive on-going support and advice from the Council’s Business Advisors as you decide whether running a business is right for you.

After completing the programme, you may have the option to take a series of further free courses as discussed with the Business Advisor.

A new programme begins every month and courses take place at the Council’s training facility in Hellesdon.

For further information please contact the Council’s Business Support team – Tel: 01603 430449, e-mail: [email protected]  or visit our website:  www.broadland.gov.uk/training to find out course dates and the range of other courses available.
