Self-employed Support

Community believe that access to learning is a fundamental human right. Education builds confidence and self-esteem and gives people dignity. It’s also a key to succeeding in our ever-changing working world, where flexible skill development is vital. That’s why we have an in-house education team based around the UK, dedicated to supporting our members access learning, training and education.

Self-employed Support

Cost is the greatest barrier for the self-employed to uptake learning as taking time out to invest in training may mean passing up the next pay opportunity. Furthermore, the self-employed typically have unpredictable work schedules, which can make finding a regular time to undertake training very challenging. Community offers self-paced, online training better suited to the self-employed, enabling them to fit training around other commitments and minimise any loss to earnings.

Community supports the self-employed to acquire skills and qualifications to raise their knowledge of the building blocks of running a successful business. We work across all sectors and industries delivering learning to help the self-employed develop key business skills that will help them survive and thrive. It provides a practical and flexible approach to the individual’s learning and development requirements as training can be tailored, making your agenda as bespoke as you need it to be.
