Leeds Beckett University is launching a new practical management training programme for local SME leaders this autumn.

The new ‘Help to Grow’ Management scheme is backed by £520 million from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and aims to boost economic recovery from the impact of COVID-19 by helping SMEs. The programme supports the leadership skills needed to boost business performance and resilience to future crises, and achieve long-term growth.

The 12-week programme is 90% funded by the Government – with only £750 per business to contribute. It has been designed to be completed by senior managers of SMEs, alongside full-time work. For more information, read the full news story about this project from Leeds Beckett University.
