Eligibility changes to the Help to Grow: Management Course allowing more businesses to benefit

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have made some recent updates to the eligibility criteria for the Help to Grow: Management Course.


On 14 June 2022, two eligibility updates were be applied to the Help to Grow: Management Course. The changes have been announced by BEIS as they aim to provide more flexibility for businesses interested in benefiting from the course. The changes will be:

  • a second participant from the same business can attend the Help to Grow: Management Course if their business has 10 or more employees.
  • SMEs who previously participated in the Small Business Leadership Programme (SBLP) can now also benefit from the Help to Grow: Management Course. A business that previously sent a participant on SBLP will be able to nominate up to two people to participate in the Help to Grow: Management Course, if they have 10+ employees, or one if they have 5-9 employees.

The Help to Grow: Management Course supports senior managers of small and medium-sized businesses to boost their business’s performance, resilience, and long-term growth. Nottingham Business School have successfully delivered the course to five cohorts and look forward to continuing with the delivery of the course with funding confirmed until 2025.

Please feel free to email with any questions you have about the course and eligibility changes or if you would like to discuss how the course could work for you.
