BUSINESS people in Bridgwater can apply for a place on a free learning scheme.

The Somerset Innovation Learning Programme will give entrepreneurs the chance to learn how to improve their business.

Cllr David Hall, county council cabinet member for Economic Development, Infrastructure and Innovation, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to learn some new skills, explore a new approach to business and take a fresh look at your organisation.”

Experts and business leaders will pass on their knowledge, and workshop sessions will allow people to discuss challenges and share ideas.

The programme, aimed at senior managers, is one three-hour session a month for six months.

The chamber of commerce is a subscription service - do you know how much 'rates' they take from the council?
