Be Your Own Boss- a self teaching course to judge if entrepreneurship is right for you
Price £50.00 plus VAT
Who should use this guide?

This self-teaching course is intended for those who are considering starting their own business and want to be their own BOSS! Use the course to learn

  • if you have what it takes to be your own boss, and

  • what key knowledge and skills you will require

 

to be successful and confident enough to work on their own without an employer safety net and embrace the rewards and risks of self-employment.

This course is intended to make you think; many of the answers to the problems for setting and running your business are already in your head from your own experiences at work and of being a customer. Through this course we are going to try and tease those out.

 

What is the length of the Course?

Typical we would expect learners using this guide to spend around 30 Guided Learning Hours on it. But you are expected to spend a lot of time (particularly early on) in thinking; the length of time you take is really up to you.

 

What is the Purpose of the Course?

To equip learners moving on from employment or completing vocational or academic education to at least Level 4 (UK) with the minimum skills, confidence, understanding, knowledge, business sense, and operational awareness, to consider self-employment as a viable career choice.

 

What are the objectives of the Course?

  1. Understand what running your own business entails and be able to decide if that is a suitable activity for you.

  2. Identify the type of skills and competencies are required to run a business and challenge yourself to assess your own capabilities for running a business; identify strengths and weaknesses and determine what actions you need to take to be successful.

  3. Help you determine your commercial offering i.e. what is the key product or service you would offer and what marketplace you are aming to address, how you will price that offering and promote it and how you will manage the logistics and administration of that business.

  4. Develop the ideas for creating a business plan to turn your dreams into a reality.

  5. Learn techniques to deal with customers, suppliers, and stakeholders to ensure a smooth running and successful business.

Our colleagues at UK SKILLS have developed a unique self-teaching course for those who want to be entrepreneurs.
