    Covers starting up a small business but also looked at individual businesses, and how different aspects would affect them.

    This course was informative and helpful in creating a business plan. The tutor was knowledgeable and friendly, and tried to tailor his presentation to the needs and interests of the students.

    Information was provided about local sources of support and advice, along with a brief overview of how to plan finances, create sales forecasts, and the importance of market research.

    Good size class. Really informative and friendly tutor. Handouts were a bit messy and ‘higgldy piggly’
