Courses, tools, and resources to help support small businesses in our Region.

Training courses and workshops

There are a number of training courses available in our Region to help businesses grow and develop. 

Build a Better Business Program

We've partnered with TAFE Queensland to deliver a training series of workshops and business mentoring to help small business owners and managers improve their business skills and build their business.

Through the Build a Better Business workshops and mentoring, expert business mentors will guide you through critical periods of business development and arm you with the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to clarify your ideas and move into the next stage of business growth.

As part of this program, participants may be able to undertake a Certificate IV in Small Business Management (BSB42518).

Digital Marketing Mentoring Program

We've partnered with DMS Creative to offer fully subsidised expert advice to local businesses, as part of its Digital Marketing Mentoring program.

Whether you run an established business or are looking for ways to best use digital marketing the program will provide growing small and medium businesses in the Region with expert advice. The program will help navigate digital marketing and service technologies, tailored to their industry and specific business needs, and help you build a Digital Business Action Plan.

Small Business Friendly Council initiative

We’ve joined the Small Business Friendly Council’s initiative partnering with the Queensland Small Business Commissioner to actively support small business in the Toowoomba Region. Small businesses are at the heart our regional communities as they create local jobs and support the local economy while providing essential goods and services. This initiative is Council’s commitment to be mindful of small business when making community decisions.
