Online courses to support local businesses

"Great course, great materials and some easy tools to take away"
Nick Vernon - Portakabin

We are committed to helping regional businesses and charities to recover, innovate and grow.

Now, more than ever, it is important for us to look after ourselves and our employees, and to retain a happy and resilient workforce. We have developed a suite of short online learning sessions to help you develop and improve your business.

These courses are written and developed by University of York staff and tutors and build on their excellent knowledge and reputation for delivering development programmes to businesses.

These courses will:

  • Help managers and individuals by supporting them through challenging times
  • Help you navigate your current business challenges
  • Improve resilience and mental wellbeing of yourself and your workforce
  • Identify the necessary strategies to prepare your business for the next step
