Training and Business Planning
Build new business and marketing skills and fine-tune your business plan with the 13-week BSB30220 Certificate III in Entrepreneurship and New Business which can be taken flexibly, online or face to face. Alternatively, take one of the shorter courses which incorporate some units from the BSB30220 Certificate III in Entrepreneurship and New Business:
Small Business Coaching
One-on-one sessions with our specialist Coaches who will mentor you through any challenges that your business is facing so you can get back on track. You may also be eligible for up to $300 in business costs upon commencement of Small Business Coaching.
Alternatively, if you’re unable to make the time commitment for the ongoing Business Coaching Sessions or Small Business Training, you can opt for Business Advice Sessions (1 x two-hour session or 2 x one-hour sessions) to seek specific advice about a particular issue within your new business.
Business Health Check
A three-hour analysis session to build an action plan for the financial health of your business.
Business Advice Sessions
If you have identified specific issues within your business, you can request targeted advice to work through them with an expert and develop solutions.
