Wigan is beating the recession with more and more small business start ups helping the community get back to work…

And if you think taking on an apprentice is only for big business, think again!

Small businesses may be entitled to grants worth up to £3000 as an incentive.

Introducing an apprentice into your business could bring new skills and ideas, helping your business develop.
