Maths for self-employment
Who is this course for?
If you are unemployed, returning to work or looking for a change in your employment status, but the idea of business plans and tax returns is scary, then this course will help you with the maths you will need to be self-employed.
You will be working on real examples of business plans, invoices, tax returns, budgets etc. so that you can grow in confidence around the maths you need to use.
Support and feedback
Your tutor will give you ongoing support and encouragement, helping you to build on your strengths and address your weak areas of maths.
Additional costs and requirements
A willingness to take part and some ideas and vision for where you want to be in five years time.
Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
You will be given work to do outside of the class, and you might also want to apply your skills to your own business ideas.
