ABOUT THIS OPPORTUNITY
If you’re looking to achieve your six month long skills section try this fantastic course combination of two of our bestselling courses.
The first part of your course will be learning all about Understanding the World of Money.
Money plays such a big part in our world now – it’s hard to avoid it talking about it. Every advert is selling you a different, bank, loan, credit card, or interest rate.
Sometimes it can just get too confusing, and that’s when people ignore the subject.
The biggest things to understand are the language and the world of money. What do all those words mean? Who’s actually making money from the things you do? How can you make the most of the money you have, right from the start?
In the second part of your course, you will learn tips and tricks from experts who have really started their own million-pound businesses!
The idea of setting up your own business and becoming an entrepreneur is just as exciting as it was for previous generations.
Even though the competition is tough, there are so many tools available to young entrepreneurs today that with a combination of a good idea, hard work, and learning some new skills, you could be the next ‘big thing’! If you’d like to try your own business, it helps to learn the basic skill sets needed to succeed.
At the end of your six-month course, you will receive your U:Bee Completion Certificate and Assessor’s Report, for your DofE Skills Section.
This course is ideal for anyone with an interest in money skills, starting their own business, or learning useful lifeskills for their future.
