Barclays to launch programme to help businesses sustain or grow

Barclays has created the Barclays Back to Business Programme is response to the challenges currently facing businesses in the UK.

Created with the Cambridge Judge Business School, the programme will launch on June 22 and centres around an online toolkit that is developed especially for small to medium-sized enterprises.

From the date a business signs-up, it will have two months to access and complete the programme, which should take around 15 hours.

The programme is designed to help companies assess the health of their business and identify how to sustain or grow during a crisis, with scenarios that can be used to see how the pandemic might affect business in future.

The key output will be a resilience plan for the business, which can then be continuously tested and evolved over time.

Anyone who would like to take part can register their interest online. Cambridge Judge Business School will get in touch to confirm a place on the programme and the access details. If there are any problems completing the form, businesses should contact
