Hopeful business entrepreneurs are being given the chance to level up their skills thanks to Exeter College’s free qualification on creating a business start-up.

Any adult with an interest in developing their business skills or starting their own venture can attend free of charge, whether they are just curious about the subject area or already have some skills they want to develop.

This part time course, which will provide learners with a NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Creating a Business Start-Up, is designed for those who want to gain an understanding of how businesses are created, and why some thrive while others don’t get off the ground.

Learners will develop knowledge around a broad base of business skills, including the progression of a business idea, pricing strategies and marketing methods.

A remarkable 600,000 businesses are launched in the UK every year but around half of those don’t make it past the first three years. This course aims to equip learners with the knowledge of how and why some businesses succeed while others don’t. Practical, transferable skills are developed along with the theoretical knowledge which underpins any business venture.

As a part time course, learners can continue to work alongside their studies or even start developing their own business idea.

This free course will launch in February 2020 and any adult learner is eligible to sign up and gain the GCSE-equivalent qualification.

Course enrolment is subject to availability.
