Enterprise & Employability

We believe that enterprise in education is an approach to, and a context for, learning that promotes good teaching practice and makes connections with the world of work. Our objective is to equip all candidates with the positive mind-set to achieve their personal goals and ambitions.

At the centre of Enterprise and Employability, we deliver:

  • Graduate Skills Development And Scholarship Programmes
  • Enterprise And Employability Programmes
  • Modern Languages
