Engagement

Guidance on engaging business, including social enterprise, in order to contribute to, inform and enhance the teaching and learning experience.

Engagement

The Hunt report defines engagement as taking on civic responsibilities and cooperating with the community that sustains higher education – including business, the wider education system, and the community and voluntary sector. The report promotes the value of active experiential learning and the development of generic skills, including entrepreneurship, which creates graduates better equipped to operate within the workplace and wider society. 

These resources aim to support HEI engagement with wider stakeholders, including business, the wider education system, and community and voluntary sector.  It includes activity descriptors on guidance on initiatives ranging from work placements, Enterprise Internships, Entrepreneurs in Residence as well as a range of national and international enterprise engagement case studies.
