Small Businesses in Australia

Australia’s small business sector plays an extremely important role in our society, as not only are there now more than two million small businesses nationwide, but they together employ more than 4.5 million people. In fact, in 2013-14 Australia’s small businesses were responsible for contributing 33.1% to the nation’s entire economy.

The Benefits of Business Management Courses

With the world of business now more competitive than ever before, standing out from the crowd has never been harder; however, investing in the right business training courses can give you a significant edge. Below are some of the many benefits you can expect from a small business management course;

  • Develop your knowledge of business finance, including accounting, taxation and payroll
  • Learn how to find and keep the right staff for your business
  • Hone your marketing skills across all platforms, from radio and television to social media
  • Find out how to embrace the latest technologies, such as cloud computing, data mining and the Internet of Things
  • Master the art of communication across all mediums
  • Develop a sixth sense for spotting problems and opportunities
  • Network with other small business professionals like you

Getting Trained Up- Small Business Courses

Getting the training, you need to help your small business thrive is easy through TAFE courses, because the business courses advertised span everything from in-class business development courses in your local area, through to online management courses.

Short Courses

One of the easiest ways to boost your skills in a hurry is by investing in a Statement of Attainment credential, as these small business short courses can be completed in just a few months, often in conjunction with your other studies. Here you will learn the basics of finance, marketing, planning, managing and monitoring a small business operation, ensuring that your new enterprise has every chance of success.

Certificate

Those looking to develop their management skills a little further will love the range of certificate programs advertised, as they’re ideal for those looking to start a business, already running a business, as well as for those interested in managing someone else’s operation.

A Certificate IV in Small Business Management, for example, covers everything from building client relationships and the art of business networking through to managing staff, inventory and conflict. Graduates will also emerge with a deeper understanding of the marketing and legal sides of running a business and will have the financial, management and organisational skills to succeed in any enterprise.

Whether you study business courses in Sydney, small business courses in Perth or one of the many business management courses online, every program advertised here meets Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) standards.

Career Prospects for Australia’s Small Businesses

The recent small business boom in Australia has made for fierce competition in many sectors; however, there has never been a better time to jump aboard this growing, and often very profitable, industry.

Recent trade partnerships with countries like Japan, China and South Korea have opened a world of opportunities, while the end of the mining boom and the push towards greener technologies have created plenty of space for innovative businesses to show what they can do.

Australia’s federal and state governments have also recently announced tax incentives for businesses willing to take on new employees, providing the perfect opportunity for small to medium enterprises looking to expand.

Are you a Good Fit for Small Business Management?

Running a small business certainly isn’t easy; in fact, 53% of Australia’s small businesses fail within their first three years; however, those who are passionate, dedicated and equipped with the right skills and knowledge can expect to find success. It’s all about what knowledge you have, and how you use it to put yourself, and your business ahead of the pack.

You need to be prepared to put in long hours, be a master of customer service and have a talent for spotting the latest trends before they take off, as well as being comfortable working with new technologies, such as social media and cloud computing. Having a knack for networking will also go a long way, as many of the best opportunities will come down to having the right connections. Software and programs, especially in accounting and managing finances, are crucial in the successful running of a small business, so ensuring you have the right skills in Xerox and MYOB are essential.

So, are you ready to turn that great idea of yours into a fun and exciting career? If so, tilt the playing field to your advantage by investing in a small business course designed to give you the strong foundation you’ll need.

For best results, take your time comparing the many great options available, choose a program to suit your schedule and get started today!
