New Year, new business for Teesside Mum


Jan 13, 2015 #Stokesley

BePro- GeorginaA Teesside Mum is starting 2015 by realising her dream of launching her own company with the backing of one the UK’s top professional bodies.

Georgina Selmi, from Great Broughton near Stokesley, has spent the last 12 months developing Bespoke Professional Development and Training (BePro), which is based at the Wilton Centre in Redcar.

BePro is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and offers tailored training packages delivered in-house, on organisations’ own premises, at local training centres across Teesside and North Yorkshire and also via distance learning.

CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting and developing the highest standards in management and leadership and is used daily by over 100,000 managers. Organisations, like BePro, have to go through a strict accreditation process in order to be able to offer their training services.

Georgina and her team of tutors have a combined experience of over 30 years in management and HR as well as teaching and assessing for universities, HE colleges and local authorities. All of the team are educated to Masters level in management disciplines and have many years professional experience.

Speaking about the launch of BePro, Georgina said: “I’ve wanted to set up my own business offering professional qualifications for some time as there’s a gap in the market across Teesside and North Yorkshire to offer CMI accredited courses delivered in-house or at local training centres at convenient times. Having worked in management and HR for decades, we understand the needs of businesses and individuals who can’t afford to spend time during the working day on learning but who really want to progress their personal development.

“Our courses, which are tailored to suit individual needs and can be completed in a matter of weeks, enhance workplace opportunities and help people gain the competitive advantage within their business sector so that they can achieve their professional and economic goals. We offer a variety of learning options, such as workshops with more self-study or completion of all units and assignments in several weeks of intensive tutor-led study- it’s entirely up to the organisation or individual.

“We’ve already got a number of distance learners taking part in a variety of courses but we are now looking forward to launching the business in our local area as it’s the ideal time for people to think about their future.”

The first courses will take place at the Terry Dicken Business Centre at Roseberry Court in Stokesley in February and will include CMI level 3 certificate in first line management and CMI level 5 in management and leadership.

BePro’s range of courses includes team leading, first line management and senior management and can be delivered at all certification levels. All of the CMI-accredited courses are aimed at businesses or individuals who want to develop current or potential managers or those that have a specific requirement such as time management, performance related development, team leading or team building.
