Enterprise Support Awards and Qualifications
The SFEDI Standards in Business Support were developed in consultation with a variety of business owners and managers.
Any adviser carrying the SFEDI logo has what it takes to provide the best support to small business owners as they start, build or grow their enterprise. Applicants who are successfully assessed are nationally recognised, proving that they have the skills and knowledge required of a high calibre Business Adviser.
Our Centres of Excellence are able to offer awards and qualifications based on our Business Support Standards.
The SFEDI Standards for Business Support offer the benefits of:
Being totally inclusive of all advisers
Presenting roles of business support within one framework
They define exactly what business advisers need to know and understand about actual business practice
They cover more subjects in greater detail
They are written in Plain English
SFEDI offers a range of Business Support endorsed awards and qualifications. All of our awards and qualifications are jointly accredited with our strategic partner ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management).
