Free Business Training

Linen Quarter BID is working alongside Belfast Met to promote a comprehensive array of business training opportunities. There are courses relevant for food and hospitality, business & finance, product design, engineering, and IT. Some of these courses start in September, but they will also be re-run in the New Year. Note: staff currently on furlough can still participate in training opportunities.

Best of all, many of the courses are fully funded up to March 2021, including a 100% skills grant from the Department for the Economy. Alternatively a call for applications for a £5,000 innovation voucher from Invest NI opens this month. Please note that conditions apply (see links below for details).

There is a direct link between staff skills and business productivity, and as part of our aspiration to create a high performance business district LQ BID encourage all of our members to review options in the attached brochure and sign staff up to a new opportunity.
