Learn how to avoid the traps and pitfalls of operating a small business

You will learn how to bring your business idea to life with the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS), funded by the Commonwealth Government.

NEIS is a competitive scheme and places are limited. Eligibilty for NEIS does not guarantee you will be accepted for NEIS training or that approval of the business plan by the NEIS provider guarantees Department of Employment acceptance.

When you complete the NEIS, you’ll have the confidence to establish and operate your own small business.

You’ll learn practical skills in areas such as scoping of business opportunities, financial planning, marketing, work prioritisation, customer service and business planning.
