PLACE 21 GOLD CLUB

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST

Do you want to stand out from the Crowd?

This is the place to find out what works in the real world of business. At the same time it will help you stand out from other university applicants and bolster your CV for future employment.

Place 21 has partnered with the Business Growth Club to deliver a unique programme, designed to give 15 selected students the best possible preparation for the world of work outside of WSC.

The Gold Club is your chance to really stand out from the crowd. You will learn what business owners are taught to grow their businesses, using the same material and experience. As part of the programme, we will match you up with local Business Growth Club employers to not only act as  mentors, but provide important work experience too.

In addition to the online interactive programme and employer mentoring scheme, Neil Foley, a highly experienced professional business coach, who has run his own business for over 20 years and is the founder of the Business Growth Club, will come to the college to deliver a series of GOLD Club Masterclasses.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from real a business expert!

We have designed this programme using the same material as Business Growth Club members – we haven’t watered anything down just because you are students, young or inexperienced. That’s because we want you to know what works in business, what owners need to do if they want to grow.

This means you will have knowledge and skills that employers want.

Knowledge other people your age are very unlikely to have.

As part of the Programme, you will set yourself a “GOLD Club Challenge” – something that really makes a difference to the way a business works.  Who knows where this will take you!  We look forward to hearing about your proposal.

The GOLD Club Programme consists of:

  • Employer Mentoring and Work Experience Scheme
  • Online learning using video and an online workbook
  • Neil Foley Masterclass series
  • Gold Club Challenge

The Business Growth Club helps small business owners in Suffolk and Norfolk to grow, using experience gained over a lifetime of sales and running small businesses. No theory – just proven practical advice, from people who’ve been there. Sharing knowledge, business ideas and building a sense of community.

It has worked with over 150 local businesses and you can see what impact this has had on the testimonial page.
