A top vocational training provider will continue its mission to get budding business leaders up and running next month with a series of high intensity bootcamps as part of Global Entrepreneur Week.
The Academy of Vocational and Professional Training was awarded a High Impact badge for its efforts during the 2012 series of events. On the back of this, it has designed a series of three hour ‘Jump Start Your Business’ master classes which focus on a dozen essentials that every entrepreneur-in-the-making should know.
Taking place throughout Global Entrepreneur Week (18 – 24 November 2013) the Academy of Vocational and Professional Training’s bootcamps are packed with practical information, indispensable no-nonsense advice, hands on guidance and immediately implementable strategy. Designed for anyone looking to start their own businesses, the sessions are led by experienced trainers and business gurus from the Academy of Vocational and Professional Training.
Starting right from the germination of an idea through to getting a fledging new company flying, classes on the 18th- 19thNovember cover how to write a business plan, identifying a USP, how to write a perfect pitch and adding value.
Calculating prices and worth, creating a brand, designing business processes and using social media will be tackled on the 20th– 21st. To round out the week, the bootcamp sessions will focus on the marketing plan, goal setting, working on yourself and raising finance.
Informative, professional and inspiring, the bootcamp has been designed to support key Global Entrepreneur week values. Taking place in more than 115 countries simultaneously, the UK programme of events is focused on getting more young people started in business to encourage a nationwide culture of entrepreneurism.
Diane Shawe founder and CEO of The Academy of Vocational and Professional Training said, “We were thrilled to receive our High Impact badge of honour in recognition of our efforts during last year’s Global Entrepreneur Week and are determined to do even better this time around!
“We know that starting a business can be an immense challenge and even though government and other agencies do provide some support, many of those interested in starting their own business can still feel overwhelmed. We have poured all of our knowledge and experience into creating our Jump Start programme of events. Feedback from last year’s sessions was so encouraging that we have further developed the concept, packed in even more useful advice and pledged to help everyone attending feel empowered and confident about taking their first steps in business.”
The UK Global Entrepreneur Week activities will be organised by Youth Business International. Its aim it to create a collaborative, local and practical week which makes it easier for those new to business to learn more and more easily access the support available to them.
