Description

Who is it for?

If you're considering self-employment or have a business idea, this is the course for you. You don't need to have any previous skills or experience to do this course: it's ideal for beginners to Business Enterprise. What will I learn? By the end of the two-day programme, you'll know about self employment and what is required. You'll know more about the skills, knowledge and abilities you need to run your own enterprise and be aware of the risks involved in setting up and running a business. There will be lots of time to discuss your ideas and you'll identify any gaps in your own knowledge, preparing a personalised plan to fill those gaps. We'll also give you some useful templates such as a basic bookkeeping spreadsheet and a business plan template.

How much time will it take?

The sessions run for two full days, then, if you've chosen the accredited option, you'll have some coursework to complete, which will be bespoke to your business idea. You can take as long as you like if you choose the distance learning option.

What do you mean by 'accredited' and 'non-accredited'?

We are offering this course in two ways:

Accredited - You'll work towards a qualification which is accredited through Open College Network (West Midlands Region). Once you have completed your coursework (after the course), you'll receive a certificate to show you have achieved your qualification, which is the Level 2 Award in Business Enterprise.

Or Non-accredited - The content of the course is the same but you won't achieve a qualification. This option is slightly cheaper but the support you receive will be the same. You won't need to complete coursework at home unless you want to.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
