The Waterford Local Enterprise Office has announced a brand new training programme schedule for autumn.

The LEO in Waterford delivers a comprehensive range of business training programmes across the city and the county, designed specifically for small businesses.

Included in the autumn programme are courses in starting your own business, an introduction to franchising, product merchandising, starting your own online business, book-keeping, training in how to use online revenue services, social media training for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube along with social media marketing and specialist courses in social media for the food, drink and hospitality industry. A range of courses is also on offer in the area of business development and online development.

According to Richie Walsh, Head of Enterprise "Our training programmes are subsidised, making them very affordable. Group sizes are small and courses are practical and geared specifically towards owners and employees of small businesses, giving you the skills and knowledge in a short course, which can be applied immediately to business.

We have designed a range of daytime and evening training courses and modules to cover a variety of topics to help prepare owners and managers for the challenges into today's business environment and we constantly review the topics to stay up to date with what is important, so our course schedule is very relevant."

Waterford LEO can help to establish and develop new and existing enterprises provided that the enterprise is capable of becoming commercially viable. These financial supports include priming grants, business expansion grants, feasibility study grants and subsidised specialist training and development.

Whether you are interested in a 'Starting Your Own Business' course or want to develop your skills in order to grow your business, Waterford LEO has a training course to suit your needs.
