Business trainers develop and deliver practical training courses and workshops on a broad range of general business and enterprise topics including management, health and safety, sales, marketing, soft skills, and customer service. Some also specialise in a particular subject area such as finance, food safety or first-aid.
Business trainers typically provide their services not only for individual course participants who book onto 'open' courses run by the trainer, but also for commercial clients such as further education colleges, public sector organisations that require in-house training for their staff, and business support organisations such as Chambers of Commerce and local enterprise agencies that engage trainers to run courses for their clients, members and tenants in managed workspace or incubators.
This profile provides information about starting up as a business trainer. It describes the skills required, the training available, the current market trends and the key trading issues. It also explains the legislation that must be complied with.
