 The Help to Grow:   Management Programme 

The Government-backed Help to Grow Management programme is delivered in collaboration with industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs who will provide you with the knowledge, practical skills and accountability to help your business reach its full potential.

Throughout the 12-week programme, you will receive 1:1 mentor support, and take part in interactive webinars and workshops, to help you design and develop a bespoke growth plan that will result in increased productivity, increased revenue and will ultimately help take your business to the next level.

The programme is designed to support SME's:

  • Enhance management and strategic capabilities

  • Produce a growth plan for their business

  • Build resilience to future shocks

  • Adopt digital technologies to boost productivity and operational agility

  • Develop their value proposition and reach into growth markets

  • Improve employee engagement and responsible business practices


The Help to Grow programme is 90% funded by the UK Government. The remaining fee of £750 will be collected by the School of Business and Creative Industries once you have been accepted onto the programme.

 Who is the Help to Grow Programme for? 

Help to Grow Management is aimed at senior leaders within small and medium sized businesses across Scotland. Businesses must have been operating for at least one year, and must be registered as a Private Limited Company to participate.

Please note that:

  • Charities are not eligible for the Help to Grow programme

  • Organisations employing less than 5 employees are not eligible for the Help to Grow programme

  • Only one participant per business can join the programme across all providers. If an organisation has ten or more employees, two participants can join the programme across all providers.

  • Previous participation in SBLP will no longer be a barrier to participation in HtGM. A business that previously sent a participant on Small Business Leadership Programme (SBLP) will be able to nominate up to two people to participate in Help to Grow: Management, if they have 10+ employees, or one if they have 5-9 employees. 

  • Businesses must be based in the UK and must have a registered business address in the UK
