The aim of this investment is to train teachers, lecturers and trainers to enable them to teach enterprise and entrepreneurship skills more effectively in all settings, including schools, colleges, the community and work place. The project will also focus on a number of specific groups to help raise entrepreneurship and enterprise skills, including undergraduates, graduates, women, older workers, social entrepreneurs and under-employed individuals/those about to enter the workforce.
This investment aims to increase high quality research and strengthen links between businesses and the partners of the Combined Universities in Cornwall. It aims to significantly boost the amount and quality of research in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly by developing a research programme tailor made for each institution.

This project is designed to deliver a range of awareness and aspiration raising activities to help increase access to higher education. This includes: raising awareness of HE opportunities; motivating individuals to participate in higher level skills, in particular from under-represented groups; raising awareness of the benefits of HE amongst employers and the workforce; and increasing progression opportunities for individuals to access HE through partnership learning.

Each and every graduate is matched with a specific opportunity with a business that use and developed their knowledge and skills and in turn they can tap into the expertise of our bank of mentors, helping them make their project a success, and using this experience to build their future careers. And each business that works with us gets the same support: a comprehensive diagnostic review to ensure that the graduate job will deliver maximum benefit for the business, coupled with help along every step of the recruitment journey.
Over time, as we learnt more about our customers needs, new services have been added including a Graduate Business Start-up service; and a range of employability courses delivered by our team, allowing graduates seeking jobs to stand out from the crowd.
