Further funding to help more women in business...

Another Swift takes off!

Our highly successful Swift Project that helped over 40 women in East Sussex with digital and business management skills in 2014/15, has been awarded further funding to open up the training opportunities to a new cohort of businesswomen.

The project is specifically targeted at women who are serious about developing their business idea or who are already in business and are committed to investing their time to attending a programme of development. The programme consists of modular and flexible training sessions which focus on delivering IT and business/personal development training. Amongst others, the part time courses include: social media, web/graphic design, writing a business plan, marketing, finance, time management, presentation skills, and selling on-line.

Sessions start on 2nd October at venues in Crowborough and Eastbourne and are completely free. Alongside the training participants will be able to attend regular peer to peer groups to share knowledge and experience with the support of a business mentor.

No qualifications or experience are required to join the programme, just a desire to learn, develop, and improve digital and business skills in an environment that supports women’s specific needs.

Places are limited to 32 and the deadline for applications is 16th September so to avoid disappointment, please apply early. For further information or an application form, please call 01825 891094 or email Ruth Maddison at
