“I have attended two courses with Colbea – First Steps to Start Up Success and Web Design and have found them both invaluable. The courses walk you through everything that you need to know step by step in a way that makes sense and is logical. The trainers are incredibly knowledgeable from their own business experience and are also responsive to questions and concerns from those of us just starting out. They help you to identify risks and pit-falls without you needing to make them. Having under-taken these courses, I now feel able to move forward with confidence to set up my own business. Thanks to Colbea, my dream of being a counsellor and helping people with their mental health will soon be a reality!”
