Fife College University Hub in Dunfermline will host a second tranche of its innovative one-year top-up degree programme in January 2020.
The BA in Business and Enterprise offers local businesses an opportunity to upskill their workforce with a minimum disruption to work routines, while benefitting from the innovative and creative ideas that their employees will bring to the workplace whilst on the course.
SMEs in Fife can also benefit from a grant towards the course fees from Fife Council’s Economic Development Services.
Pamela Stevenson, Enterprise and Business Development Manager at Fife Council said: “This locally-delivered degree programme provides a fantastic opportunity for businesses to enhance their capability, even while participants are still studying. It has proved to be an excellent way for businesses to upskill their workforce and develop their future management team needs.”
The year-long top-up programme, run by Edinburgh Napier University, is available for those in work – both employed or self-employed – who have relevant work experience and an HND or SCQF Level 8 equivalent qualification.
Using practical work-based content, the programme develops business, management and enterprise skills and leads to the award of a BA degree.
The programme involves a combination of assessments, workshops and independent study, with attendance one day per month at the Fife College University Hub in Dunfermline.
Assessments are practical and applied, including reports around work roles, work-place based assignments, presentations and case studies.
Business owners, managers and employees can find out more at a drop-in information session at 4-6pm on Tuesday 10 December at Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline.
