The government’s Help to Grow: Management programme offers the chance to take your business to the next level, with support from senior local business leaders.

As high streets continue their recovery and look to encourage new entrants into our town and city centres, the new Help to Grow: Management programme can support business leaders with practical training and mentoring, subsidised by government.

Delivered across the UK by leading business schools accredited by the Small Business Charter, Help to Grow: Management is a 12-week programme where delegates join other business leaders for management training and a 1-1 mentorship.

Costing £750, with a 90% subsidy from the government as part of its Plan for Jobs, the scheme is designed to help businesses to drive growth and create jobs.

Build a growth plan for your local business

Designed for senior leaders of small and medium businesses and manageable alongside full-time work, there are a wide range of modules available, including financial management, strategies for growth and innovation, leading high-performance teams, and approaches to digital adoption.

By the end of the programme you will develop a tailored business growth plan to help lead your business to its full potential, and have access to an extensive alumni network.
