The Challenges Group uses a dynamic approach to develop the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises by improving management practice and processes. We apply this same ethos and strategy when working with young people by creating opportunities that help them gain the necessary skills and experience to access meaningful employment. Our impactful approach focuses on job creation and improving operational efficiencies.
Challenges use a blended learning model to deliver their professional qualifications. We are the UK’s largest exporter of Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualifications and have provided on-the-ground support to more than 1000 SMEs.
Management Direct is our dedicated online learning resource, designed to support and enhance our clients’ learning journey and professional outcomes.
Our Youth Skills Development Programmes focus on providing meaningful placements for young people, giving them the practical experience needed to create job opportunities and challenge the problem of youth unemployment.
