Business trainers deliver practical training courses on a broad range of topics including enterprise skills, food hygiene, management, health and safety, sales, marketing, stress management, customer service and first aid. Some also specialise in a particular subject area such as marketing or finance.
Business trainers typically provide 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 that engage trainers to run courses for their clients and tenants in managed workspace or incubators.
