Synergy Exchange

SYNERGY aims to improve the quality of training and education offers for SMEs, creating online networking and exchange opportunities between SMEs and VET Providers. addresses the ‘real-world distance’ between the training opportunities which the VET sector provide for micro-enterprises, and what the micro-enterprise owners really need by way of training and up-skilling.

Through, business owners have free access to mini-training courses and resources which address the training needs of micro-enterprise owners. A comprehensive induction programme is available online to enhance the capacity of trainers to work with micro-enterprise owners and to build their knowledge of the business sector. Similarly, SYNERGY has developed an induction programme which helps micro-enterprise owners in their new role in peer-to-peer learning.

Synergy Exchange also allows business owners to connect with other business owners. By networking with people who understand the challenges and aspirations of other business owners, the SYNERGY networks can help to enrich European businesses by creating long-term and meaningful business partnerships across the project consortium.

SYNERGY is an opportunity to network with businesses in other European countries to make the connections needed to target new customer sectors or geographical locations, form partnerships that would otherwise not be possible, or simply be inspired by the approaches and methods used by other micro-enterprise owners to maximize their return.
