Colne BID has partnered with Boost- Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub to offer Boost bitesize training sessions and NVQ training opportunities to Colne BID Businesses. We want to bring you a series of topics relevant to a variety of Colne BID Businesses from Retail, Office, Hospitality, Manufacturing etc.
Boost Bitesize sessions
Accessible one hour online sessions (via ZOOM), designed to help you develop tools and techniques that will help you and your business as we begin to enter a new post Covid 19 world. Each session is designed to support you in developing your strategy for recovery.
They will be drawing on the collective knowledge and experience of you, your fellow participants and the BOOST business advisor to develop a way forward that will maximise your chance of survival and success.
You’ll be part of a supportive small group of 6-10 people in each session, and will have an opportunity to participate, ask open questions and discover solutions. Here’s an outline of the Bitesize training modules we can arrange (subject to demand and availability of business Advisors). Once we have expressions of interest from enough businesses to run a session we will confirm sessions & dates.
