Productivity Boost for Small Businesses in South West & Central Wales


Small businesses in South West and Central Wales will benefit from stronger leadership and entrepreneurship skills to improve their overall productivity, thanks to a UK government-backed project which received the green light today.  Under the programme, the Regional Learning Partnership South West and Central Wales (RLP) will work with the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) to pilot new ways to boost the leadership of small businesses.

This project will develop more effective engagement with SMEs and Micro Businesses whilst signposting them to the support that is available. It will form a pilot group of small employers to co-create and test new ways of reaching small businesses in the region. Existing support will be mapped out and tested to challenge its relevance and appropriateness for small businesses.
