Developed by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial strategy the course is designed to be undertaken alongside full-time work through a combination of online and face-to-face sessions.  The programme duration is 12 weeks and 50 hours time commitment.  

The practically focused, high quality curriculum supports SMEs to build capabilities in leadership, innovation, digital adoption, employee engagement, marketing, responsible business and financial management. By the end of the programme SMEs will develop a business growth plan, supported by dedicated programme mentors, to lead their business to release its full potential.
