The Help to Grow: Management course is a government backed programme to help business leaders develop their strategic skills, create jobs and boost their business performance.

The 12-week programme is delivered by over 40 leading business schools across the UK and combines a practical curriculum with 1 to1 business mentor support throughout and includes modules on financial management, strategies for growth and innovation, and approaches to digital adoption. 

The government has committed to making 30,000 places available on the course over the next 3 years. The cost of the course is 90% subsidised by the government and costs only £750.

UK businesses from any sector that have been operating for more than one year, with between 5 to 249 employees are eligible to enrol. The participant in the course should be the decision maker or member of the senior management team within the business. Charities are not eligible as the scheme is designed to support commercial enterprises.

The Business Secretary said:

‘Help to Grow: Management is a fantastic scheme to equip ambitious business leaders with the tools to take their business to the next level, helping create an even more high-productivity, high-wage economy we build back better from the pandemic.’
