Course Description

With such turbulent times within the world financial markets many individuals seek security in ways that they may not, or would not have fully considered previously.

This programme has been designed and created to provide students with a greater knowledge and understanding of what it really entails to launch your own business. This course consists of a number of modules, all of which will investigate a different aspect of this subject area. There are several topics which learners are required to study including business planning, customer service, managing operations, writing a business plan and much more!

When it comes to starting up your own business there are a range of stages to follow. This course strives to provide students with a real insight into what it really entails to successfully start up your own business. It is crucial that you develop an effective plan that will enable you to test your product or service, and make any necessary alterations and developments that may be needed for improvement. It all starts from coming up with a realistic idea and turning it into a business.

We have all noticed a change on the High Street for example, who would have predicted the demise of institutions such as Woolworths, or the Banks having to be propped up, or the housing market crashing? This has led many individuals to fight back and regain control of their lives, some are brave and some are foolhardy. As we progress through the course we will pick through the myriad of information necessary to help you follow the right path to success with your own new business start-up.

Our aim is to provide you with the best deal available, therefore registration fee, certification fee and full tutor support is included in the course price for you.

    Prompt feedback

    The tutor was extremely helpful and informative, and his ideas were great. His feedback was always extremely relevant and useful. He also always returned my work back to me promptly, and always had a positive comment to make regarding my work. He also always informed if there may be a delay in returning work to me. For example if he was on holiday which I found extremely polite of him. I could not fault him as a tutor. He was extremely professional, he was excellent, and I would award his tutoring with a 5 star rating!
