Ever thought of starting your own business?

People wishing to start their own business are being given a helping hand by the University of Bath.

The University's Self Employment Essentials course is run by the Division for Lifelong Learning and is designed to guide people through their self employment options and help develop their skills to start a business.

It's being run through evening and intensive day courses from September 2009 with free taster sessions this month.

Evening courses run on Tuesdays from 6pm to 9pm and full day courses run on Tuesdays 10am -3.30pm. Both start on 8 September 2009 at Carpenter House in Bath.  

Delia Slucutt, Enterprise Co-ordinator, said: "For people wanting to go self employed, Self Employment Essentials offers training, first hand experiences from a business tutor and opens the doors to small business resources.  It's a great safe way of exploring if self employment is the right option."

People interested are being invited to free taster sessions: 

  • "How to develop business ideas", Thursday 20 August 2009, 10am - 12.30pm
  • "How to make contacts", Saturday 22 August 2009, 11am - 2pm
