Find out more about the last 8 months of our free Training Hub.


BID Lead

Throughout 2023 so far, businesses across the three central Business Improvement Districts in Bristol have been using SeedL, a free online training platform provided to all levy paying businesses, with over 370 hours of training being completed. Businesses including  WECA, Ecosurety, DAS, and Mott Macdonald have been making use of the free e-learning with popular course subjects including communication skills, Excel, Office 365, leadership essentials and stress management.

Rebecca Squires, DAS

‘I particularly like that there are various date or time options for some courses, which provides more flexibility. I often attend courses before and after work to fit in more learning. DAS has recently moved to using Office 365 so the modules and courses under this category have been really beneficial for myself and others.’

The Training Hub has had growing demand since its launch in January. In August, 74 hours of training were recorded by the BID community and 85% of attendees rated the courses “Very Good” or “Excellent”.

Kemka Nwaorgu, Places for People

'‘My experience of this program has been positive as I have enjoyed the interactive nature of it, with a variety of course options available throughout the day to accommodate my busy work schedule.'
