Overview

Self-employment and starting up new businesses may look considerably more appealing than ever before, but many people looking into this option may well not have the necessary skills and knowledge that they need to succeed.

Our Certificate in Entrepreneurship has been designed to support individuals in setting up a new business, guiding them in their strategic objectives, introducing them to new concepts, and providing them with coaching throughout the programme.

With modules such as Building Your Online Presence, Developing Innovation and Creativity, and Presenting Your Business, there are a wide range of subject areas and learning objectives to enable owners and employees of start-ups or young businesses to develop their knowledge and skills and look forward to a brighter future.

The programme has a wide range of resources available, making the programme of learning straightforward to deliver. This includes videos, exercises, and other resources. Additionally, learners are able to take every module in the programme or simply take individual modules required to address skills gaps. Any combination of units can be taken to achieve this nationally recognised, regulated qualification, provided that the required number of credits are achieved for certification.

To complete this course Students must finish Mandatory Modules and students can choose Optional Modules to improve knowledge.
