8:44am 14th October 2014
Lessons in business look set to boost enterprise in Weymouth and Portland.
20 people interested in starting up their own company have now completed an Enterprise Training Course.
The courses are held at Weymouth College and supported by the Borough Council.
Councillor Mike Byatt, borough council brief holder for Corporate Affairs and Continuous Improvement, said: "It is great news for Weymouth and Portland that there are a lot of enthusiastic and enterprising business people who are just starting out. I wish their enterprises every success."
The event was also attended by representatives of Weymouth and Portland Chamber of Commerce and training provider WSX Enterprise.
Councillor Byatt added: "The borough council supports growth in the economy through our partnership with WSX, by assisting people who want to become self-employed or start their own business. This has been a very successful programme leading to several new small business start-ups and hopefully many more in the future."
