Description

Student Employability Centre provides students, before, during and after their course, with support and services in gaining employment or setting up businesses. This model employs a holistic approach, looking at non academic issues that affect career plans.

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.
