By registering to the Business Northumberland programme, you will gain access to our interactive online learning portal.

All the content has been developed by expert trainers to bring you the very best support that you can access wherever, and whenever, you need it.

Our online learning covers the following areas;

✔ Finance for Business
✔ Driving Business Growth
✔ Growing and Entering Markets
✔ Leadership and Management
✔ Employment and Skills
✔ Websites and eCommerce
✔ Search Engine Optimisation
✔ Marketing and Communications
✔ Social Media
✔ Data Protection (GDPR)

You can work through the resources in your own time, at your own pace. And whether you choose to complete a full module, or dip in and out, is completely up to you and your preferred learning style.

Our supportive resources are made up of a mixture of;

✔ Interactive Presentations
✔ Videos and Tutorials
✔ How To Guides
✔ Document Templates
✔ Workbooks

You can even submit your working to the course tutor or develop your own Personal Development Plan.

Each module is broken down into manageable sections. For example, within the Social Media module you can find support on;

What is Facebook?
How to set a Facebook Business page
How to schedule posts on Facebook
How to boost posts on Facebook
How to analyse Facebook insights

You can access all this support for Twitter and LinkedIn too!

We expect each individual topic section to take on average 20 minutes to complete.

So whether you want to complete a full course, or dip in and out of specific areas of support, the online learning is flexible to your needs.



Where should I start?

Maybe you have a new business and you are looking for support across the board but you're not sure where to start.

Or maybe you only have a limited amount of time so you really need to focus in on your key areas.

We have developed a diagnostic tool to help you. If you click on 'Where Do I Start' along the top of this page, you will be taken to our online diagnostic.

If you select that you need some help to determine the support your business needs, you will be taken to our fully interactive diagnsotic. This tool is designed to provide resources and workshops tailored specifically to the answers that you provide.

Don't forget...

You do need to be registered to the Business Northumberland programme to be able to access our online support.

If you aren't logged into the website, you wont be able to access the courses or the diagnostic.
