Is your business struggling with the cost of management training?

Help to Grow: Management is an executive development leadership and management course designed to help you grow your business. The project is part-funded by the UK Government, with the remaining 10% paid by participating businesses as a one-off upfront fee of £750.

In order to help businesses most affected by the coronavirus pandemic, East Midlands Chamber is subsidising the £750 training fee for 100 eligible businesses.

The result? Businesses receive a fully-funded, 12-week executive development leadership and management course designed to accelerate growth.

Why participate?

Help to Grow management training courses will help your business:

  • enhance the ability of your senior staff to lead growth;
  • boost productivity;
  • learn how to innovate;
  • build resilience to future shocks; and 
  • produce a growth plan to allow your business to fulfil its potential.

How does it work?

Designed to be undertaken alongside full-time work, the time commitment is 50 hours over 12 weeks. Help to Grow: Management is a small investment that can play a big part in securing the future of your business.

The programme uses a combination of online and face-to-face sessions alongside case study workshops to give you the opportunity to apply the concepts being taught to real-life situations.

By the end of the course, you will have developed a tailored Growth Action Plan to help you lead and develop your business with the aim of realising its full potential. You’ll be supported through the programme by your own mentor, and will have the opportunity to learn from peers in other businesses.
