Business Support

This Project consists of two programmes with all courses being delivered in Market Towns across the Shropshire Council Local Authority area.

The Active Leadership Programme is a 5-day leadership course with an additional 3 hours of 1-1 coaching. This Programme is an innovative solution to the challenges faced by business leaders today; with the world evolving at a rapid pace, leaders must be equipped with the right set of skills and tools to stay ahead of the curve.

The Team Upskilling Programme delivers a number of 1 day and ½ day training courses designed to upskill employees and employers allowing them to create growth in their businesses. This Programme is designed to give team members knowledge and skills that will help them with particular elements of their roles.

Chamber membership is not required to be eligible for these courses… applications are encouraged from non-member as well as our members.
