Building resilience is one of the main themes for year three of the fully funded skills programme – Better Business Skills - thanks to the North of Tyne Combined Authority. Exclusively available to residents across the North of Tyne region (Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle), you or your employees could access a tailored skills development plan that could help re-invigorate your business skills. Year three of this specialist skills programme sees the provision of additional coaching support to ensure skills learned can be implemented into business with confidence. Take a look at our range of sessions here www.learnwithnbsl.org.uk/better-business-skills.

All NBSL masterclasses are run by business experts with real-world experience of building and running small businesses, so you’re getting knowledge straight from the people who’ve been there and done it.
It doesn’t matter which aspect of your business you want to develop – whether you want to improve your processes, manage your market share or shake up your sales techniques - we’ve got a session and the support you need.
