Services

We offer several services which are on offer to the West of England partners: thinking about business, starting in business workshop, one-to-one business advice and business skills development workshops.

Thinking about Business

A 2 hour workshop for people who are interested in self-employment/starting their own business. This workshop does not go in to the detail of how to set up a business – it is to help individuals gain a better understanding of what is involved and help them understand whether self-employment is the right option for them. The content includes:-

The pros and cons of being your own boss

Is self-employment right for you

Essential preparation – eg market research

How to measure success

The workshop is delivered in Bristol, but could be delivered at other premises provided we receive the funding to do so.
