A Lancashire training specialist is highlighting the successes of individuals who have gone on to create their own businesses to celebrate Entrepreneurship Week.

As well as helping students to reach their goals by getting the qualifications they need to get a job, PHX Training is pointing out the essential skills needed for the world of business during the week running from November 12-16.

With a dedicated team in Preston, Blackpool and Morecambe, the company’s tutors specialise in core training in relevant Maths, English and IT qualifications as well as NVQs.

Shirley Williams, development director of Preston-based PHX Training, said: “It’s fantastic to hear that people are going into self-employment after training with us, setting up their own business and having the confidence in life to help themselves.

“This sums up our purpose, to give people the skills and confidence to go forward in the world of work and business at whatever level is appropriate and right for them.”

Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch start-ups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. The aim is to make it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business by fostering deeper collaboration between entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurial support organisations. 

PHX Training delivers government-backed training initiatives, adult skills, NEET (not in education, employment or training), employability contracts, apprenticeship training and work-based learning programmes.

The PHX team of qualified trainers delivers a diverse range of resources including offline, online and face-to-face services at seven training centres in Barrow, Blackpool, Carlisle, Cleator Moor, Morecambe, Preston and Workington.
