Free management course for SMEs

The government has launched the new Help to Grow: Management Essentials course; a short online course with practical tips and resources for small business leaders.

It is based on the 12-week Help to Grow: Management Course and is suited for leaders of newer or smaller SMEs, or those who are looking to explore the principles of business growth and management before taking the next step and enrolling in the full course.

The government sees small businesses as a vital part of local economies across the UK and supporting them is crucial to delivering on the need to grow the economy.

2024 is nominated as the year of the SME and the government has pledged it will continue to support and engage small businesses, reaffirming their role as the engines of our economy. The recent launch builds on a raft of measures designed to help them meet their full potential.

Essentials is the latest addition to the extensive package of SME support announced by Government as part of the ‘Help to Grow’ campaign: a one-stop shop for SMEs. The Help to Grow site makes it quicker and easier for business owners to find the resources they need for every step of their growth journey from across government.
