We have used these workshops and mentoring programme to develop and support my role as the business owner, and to support me in developing the team’s training and responsibilities. This has played a big part in sustaining jobs and broadening our ambitions for us as a business and as individuals.

Develop junior members of staff

The Innovation Community Lab (ICL) is a 30-hour course designed to build knowledge and skills, develop confidence and leadership potential in junior staff.

We run two cohorts a year: January to June, and July to December. Please contact us to book onto the programme.

ICL had improved my confidence to pitch ideas, developed new ways of working and supporting more collaborative approach.
