The government has recently launched the new Help to Grow: Management Essentials course, a short online course with practical tips and resources for small business leaders. Based on the 12-week Help to Grow: Management Course, Essentials is suited for leaders of newer or smaller SMEs, or those who are looking to explore the principles of business growth and management before taking the next step and enrolling in the full course.

Help to Grow: Management Essentials is free, with content divided into three easy-to-access modules consisting of short videos and supporting resources covering the essential business concepts required to unlock growth.

The course is free and can be accessed here.

Small businesses are a vital part of local economies across the UK and supporting them is crucial to delivering on the Prime Minister’s priority to grow the economy. This course will support SME leaders to establish their roots as they look ahead to scale up and grow their business.

Essentials is the latest addition to the extensive package of SME support announced by Government as part of the ‘Help to Grow’ campaign: a one-stop shop for SMEs. The Help to Grow site makes it quicker and easier for business owners to find the resources they need for every step of their growth journey from across government.
