Our Marketplace is a free local directory of Hertfordshire businesses offering high-quality advice, support and B2B services. It’s a great way to advertise your services to SMEs in the county – or to find local businesses who can help you make things happen.
Joining our Marketplace is a free, simple way to grow your customer base. Every business that joins gets a listing on this page and is promoted on Twitter too. If you’d like to apply, please fill in our registration form.
Our new digital business support platform will be going live in the next couple of weeks. Therefore, we are no longer accepting new supplier listings to the current website. Once the platform is live, you'll be able to register as a supplier!

Distance learning is a great way to learn new skills and achieve a recognised qualification.
Our fully accredited courses make it easy for you to study either at home or at work and achieve a qualification that will open up new opportunities and boost your career.
After you enrol, we will send you a comprehensive pack with everything you will need to complete your course, including learning materials and assessment workbooks.
We will also assign a course tutor who will support you either by email or telephone whilst you complete your course.
Timescales are flexible, however most courses can be completed in around 8-10 weeks.
ILM courses in Team Leading, Leadership and Management, and Coaching and Mentoring offer an efficient and streamlined route to developing and certificating skills.
These ILM certificated courses may be delivered as distance learning programmes for individual learners or as structured in-company programmes for cohorts of learners.
Learners complete their qualifications by submitting a number of assignments for assessment.
These are flexible qualifications, allowing learners to select the units they wish to study.
At each level, there is a choice of either Award, Certificate or Diploma.
