Being in business means that you suddenly have to consider accountancy, marketing, sales, IT, customer service, web sites and optimisation among what seems like an endless list of subjects.
Although there is no need to become an expert in all fields there is no doubt that having a fundimental understanding of the key tasks will stand you in good stead. Local colleges often run courses on starting a business as well as many of the other practical considerations.
You may also need to learn more about your core skills and there are plenty of firms who will be happy to help.
This section is designed to point you in the right direction.
If you run your own business in London-West and would like to learn more about education and training, we have compiled a library of useful resources and frequently asked questions which we hope that you will find both interesting and useful.
A4e is contracted by DEL to deliver the fully funded ApprenticeshipsNI programme to employers and their employees throughout NI. Courses are available in Hospitality & Catering, Retail, Business Administration and many more. 7894599661
