Free Training to Boost Business Mentors

posted 17 Feb 2012, 03:06 by   [ updated 17 Feb 2012, 03:06 ]
An innovative online training tool has been launched to help get thousands of experienced business people mentoring small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

The new training tool is part of the Get Mentoring scheme launched in November that is recruiting 15,000 new mentors to help entrepreneurs fulfil their potential. The tool, provided by the Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative (SFEDI) at, is free to use, making it even easier for people to get mentoring and join the growing network of volunteer business mentors.
Small business owners value talking to other entrepreneurs and we at ACBBA know from experience there is a lot of informal mentoring going on; we are happy to partner in a project that aims to enhance this form of support and mobilises and builds on the resources already present in the business community.
The online training is available now at
