Wexford County Council’s Local Enterprise Office
launches its Autumn range of business courses
The Local Enterprise Office (LEO) in Wexford County Council has just unveiled its Autumn suite of business courses and clinics. The courses are open to everyone and include everything you need to develop and improve your business, including Facebook for Business, “greening” your business to save money, and a range of book-keeping courses.
There are half-day courses and multi-part learning programmes on offer as well as one-to-one clinics where an expert will help you with a specific aspect of your business.
Courses are run at different locations around County Wexford ensuring that the LEO’s reach stretches to every corner of the county. For example, the LEO’s flagship course, their 10-week ‘Start Your Own Business’ programme runs at business and enterprise centres in each of County Wexford’s four municipal districts.
Upskilling and improving the capacity of Wexford’s community of entrepreneurs is a key goal for the Local Enterprise Office. Starting a business is a daunting challenge. The work of the Local Enterprise Office with the support of Wexford County Council aims to make that challenge a little easier for the people of Wexford by equipping them with the skills and confidence to run successful home-grown enterprises.
Head of Enterprise at Wexford County Council is Tom Banville. “‘At Wexford Local Enterprise Office we offer a modern and diverse selection of courses that are relevant to running a business today” said Mr. Banville. “From social media marketing courses to how to tender successfully for government contracts and much more – it’s about helping entrepreneurs in Wexford to grow their businesses and compete successfully in their given fields, both nationally and internationally. As their businesses grow, more jobs are created for the people of Wexford and everybody benefits”.
All the courses and clinics are subsidised to make them affordable to small business owners as they start and grow their businesses. Many of the courses are subsidised further for those participants who are currently unemployed and wish to upskill in order to re-enter the workforce.
