BRADFORD businesswoman Terry King OBE is launching a new chapter.

Terry, who co-founded Chapter 3 Enterprise, a not for profit company supporting the needs and aspirations of older people, has launched a new online training company - Chapter 3 Academy.

Along with fellow director, Dianne Tew, they have used their wealth of social business knowledge in developing the first three courses focusing on recruiting volunteers, pitching to funders and making friends with the media.

“We are delighted by our early results with students as far away as the Netherlands and the USA signing up for our courses. Going online is a fantastic opportunity to increase our reach and help more people. Previously all of our courses were delivered face to face and whilst there is nothing like that personal interaction the numbers of people you can engage with is limited," explains Terry.

Adding: "We have started with three courses and currently have another five under development.”

Marysia one of the first Chapter 3 Academy students said of the 'How to develop the perfect pitch for funders' “Fantastic course, very interesting indeed, simple to follow and understand. I learned so much!!!"

The e-learning market is estimated to rise from USD 190 billion in 2018 to USD 300 billion by 2025, according to a 2019 Global Market Insights, Inc. report. The rise in the demand for cost-effective training and learning techniques will drive the market growth over the coming years.
