Description

New approach to awareness raising seminars for business advisors allowed for small groups of advisors to sit around the table with experts to listen and ask questions, moving around after a specified time to the next table and the next expert. It has proved much more valuable and engaging than a large ‘lecture’ style talk.

Justification/aim

President of National Union for Students Scotland has called for all Colleges to adopt similar practice of Student Employability Centre. The approach to business incubation has been disseminated locally, nationally and transnationally and may be adopted as good practice by other Local Authority Bodies providing Business Incubation Units. Awareness raising seminars has been mainstreamed by local enterprise companies as a much more effective way of giving information to and engaging with business advisors. The Centre for Social and Entrepreneurial Activity - support element of this project has been enhanced and is now funded through ERDF.

The strategic ‘think tank’ element of the project has been mainstreamed and is core funded through Clackmannanshire Council. Student Employability Centre has been mainstreamed into College budget.
