Key Information for Businesses

How do I access the Management Capability Development Fund?

As a business owner or senior manager you should initially contact Enterprise North Canterbury’s Business Support, and they will arrange to meet with you. We will assess your business needs and recommend a range of resources, coaching or training to assist you. The results of the assessment will highlight the strengths you have in your business and enable any potential weaknesses to be identified.  This service is free to businesses in North Canterbury.

What if there are training needs identified?

ENC will be able to allocate Management Capability Development funding which can be used to subsidise services with specified accredited training providers or business coaches in Canterbury or nationwide for training and coaching in areas such as:

  • Business Planning
  • Marketing Strategies
  • Finance
  • Business Systems
  • Managing Resources
  • Governance
  • Sustainability
  • Lean Manufacturing/Business Operations
  • Exporting

How much am I entitled to?

Each allocation is worth a maximum of 50% of the cost of a training course and each business is entitled to a maximum of $5000 (ex GST) to be spent on the identified training needs of management within the business per year. Eligibility for funding depends on a number of factors and in most cases your will not be eligible for the full $5,000.

Who are the accredited training providers?

Accredited training providers are business coaches and training services in New Zealand who have had their services approved by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment for RBP funding.
