Kettering Borough Council has introduced a new website for local people looking for new opportunities to enhance their business or individual skills, through their Enterprise Kettering support service.

The new Enterprise Kettering website provides a ‘one stop shop’ for enterprise, skills, training and business opportunities from grant funding to workshops and local authority services, in one central, easy-to-use location. The website is designed to provide essential business and skills support for the local economy, signposting to the latest opportunities available.

The Council’s Enterprise Kettering service has also recently held a number of popular free workshops for local businesses, including twitter training and window dressing. Upcoming free workshops, held at The Yards and run by Kerching Retail, include:

  • Digital Marketing for Retail (6th March, 10am-Noon & 12th March, 6-8pm)
  • Retail Selling Skills (27th March, 10am-Noon)

To register for these courses, please email enterprise@kettering.gov.uk

Enterprise Kettering is also delighted to announce that The Teenage Market will be returning to Kettering on 14th July and 1st December 2018. It’s a great opportunity for youngsters to learn first-hand business related skills, with free stalls and insurance to those aged 13-21.
