Self-employment support – Create

Create self-employment course self-employed how to start your own business help and advice

Stop thinking, start creating…

Starting your own business (or working for yourself) is an exciting adventure and we’re here to help you every step of the way with our award-winning ‘Create’ course! This comprehensive self-employment training, consisting of workshops (currently being delivered by webinar) and a variety of post course support, is FREE to all suitable applicants, thanks to being part of a ground-breaking project called “Increase Valorisation Sociale” which has been financed by a generous grant from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

For more information please call the EST team on 0800 432 0570 or email estsupport@radian.co.uk

Our FREE live webinar courses are delivered via Zoom or Microsoft Teams and run over four workshops lasting 3.5 hours in length, beginning with initial research to formulating a business plan. They are relaxed and aim for a collaborative and supportive environment for people to develop and extend their knowledge and confidence.

Topics covered include:
• Financial forecasting
• Taxation
• Insurances
• Legal issues
• Working tax credits/benefits
• Marketing & branding
• Production & supply
• Research
• Management
• Creating an effective business model
• Business Presentation

All graduates from either course can then go on to benefit from free post course support, including;
• Business Support Clubs — regular meet ups to provide motivation, peer support, practical advice and occasional guest speakers
• Additional training / workshops applicable to you and your business growth
• Stalls to sell or promote your product or service at Radian marketplace events
• 1:1 business mentoring with our team of experts

As we have said the ‘Create’ training is FREE, the only thing we ask you for is to complete an enrolment form with us and then you are ready to start ‘Creating’!
