Help To Grow scheme

Exciting opportunity for small businesses as Cardiff Business School is confirmed as a partner for the Government-backed Help to Grow: Management scheme.

Designed to be manageable alongside full-time work, the Help to Grow: Management programme will support small business leaders to develop their strategic skills, with 12 key modules covering a range of skills that will help them to develop a tailored sustainable business growth plan which will lead their business to its full potential.

Cardiff Business School, the world's first public value business school accredited with the Small Business Charter , is joining other world-class business schools to deliver this new executive training programme.

This practical programme is designed for senior managers and leaders of micro firms and SMEs, and is an opportunity to work with industry experts to learn how to enhance your management and strategic capabilities, develop your value proposition, embed innovation into your business practice, products, and services, improve employee engagement, and importantly understand how to build resilience for future economic shocks through improved market, financial and technological support.

The programme is 90% subsidised by UK Government – costing business owners only £750 (or £65 per week) for the full programme. The programme runs for 12 weeks, and is comprised of modules plus 1:1 support from a business mentor, peer-learning sessions, and an alumni business network.

The programme will cover critical areas of leadership including:

  • Strategy and innovation
  • Adopting digital technology
  • Building vision and brand
  • Growing national and international markets
