Course programme leader, Sarah Walker says:

“We are a friendly team who help you from concept stage right through to starting on your self-employed journey. Not only that, we keep in touch through the individual mentoring that we provide. You can also become part of a bigger business family such as finding other military members for developing your new company’s website, producing branded products or even have professional photographs taken to promote your business – so everyone also helps each other.”
