The UK had 5.9 million private sector businesses at the start of 2019. This sector comprises organisations ranging from large corporations (with over 250 employees) to non-employing businesses. In 2019, 76% of all businesses in the private sector did not employ anyone aside from the owner(s) and 99% of all businesses contributing to the UK economy are small to medium enterprises (SMEs). Despite the difference in sizes, all of these businesses benefit from people with skills in areas such as IT, finance, customer relations and communications.

We offer entry points for learners who are thinking about a career in the sector as a first job or those who are returning to the labour market right up to a wide range of courses appropriate for CPD and staff development for more experienced workers to widen their knowledge and skills.
