Small Business Entrepreneurship
  • Instructor: admin
  • Duration: 10 weeks

Do you dream of owning your own business but lack the skills to get started? Entrepreneurship is the development of a business from the ground up — coming up with an idea and turning it into a profitable business. This AOY Skills Certificate will give you the confidence to embark on your venture and turn your dream into a reality.  Starting your own business has never been easier with the government actively encouraging South Africans to make their own opportunities and become job creators.

A successful business requires vision, leadership and in-depth knowledge of your target market.  Many start-up companies fail in the first year because of inadequate training and unrealistic expectations.  This skills course will give you practical knowledge to plan your business, evaluate the different financing options available to you, and how to cost, budget and market your product.

This course is directed toward potential and existing entrepreneurs as well as existing business owners.

  • Becoming an entrepreneur
  • Financing and planning your business
  • Formalizing your business
  • Getting your logistics on track
  • Costing and pricing
  • Recording business financial transactions
  • Budgeting, cash control and forecasting
  • Marketing and advertising
  • Your employees and labour legislation

”I was looking for a course that would not only give me a qualification, but a career and a future. I spoke to one of the students advisors and she opened my eyes and  I started to think big, then I remembered I was looking for more than a qualification. The support, the follow up about my studies really can”t wait to sign up for the next course. Academy of York thank you for all the support.”
