If you’re interested in starting your own business, then our FREE start-up training course could be just what you need to get going.

We're running an online taster session on Monday 13 September. Come and join us for 2 hours from 10am to find out how we can help you to make your career dreams a reality.

Then if you like what you see, you can enrol on the free online Increase VS start-up course which commences the following week.  The full course itself runs over a 5 week period, with one session per week. You can choose whether to enrol on our Monday or Wednesday course.

  • The Monday courses run weekly from 20 September until 18 October 2021 (running 10am until 3pm).
  • The Wednesday courses run weekly from 22 September until 20 October 2021 (running 10am until 3pm).

Over the period of the course, you’ll:

  • Refine your business idea
  • Build your confidence
  • Learn how to promote your business online
  • Learn how to register, manage your finances, taxes and benefits
  • Get support from your landlord.

The Increase VS programme first began in September 2018. Since then more than 1,000 people have benefited from our business courses, advice and support. You could be next!
