Enterprise Development Associate
Fixed Term Contract: until December 2023
Salary – Circa £35,500
NMITE is proud to be a new provider of higher education in Hereford. Teaching and engineering focussed, we are committed to authentic learning, developing skills and mindsets, a transformative educational experience, interdisciplinary approaches, innovative provision, and local, regional, national, and international impact. Supported by Government, industry, and the engineering profession, we aim to be a game-changer in every facet of our operations and educational programmes.
We recognise that future engineers need technical knowledge, but also that creativity, problem-solving ability, and understanding of humanities, arts, business, and many other areas are all required to succeed, as well as the ability to use this knowledge in current and future professional contexts. For these reasons our programmes will be open to all with the creativity, imagination and the determination to solve society’s challenges, not just those with A-level maths and physics. Our teaching will be in studio-based, problem-led, and deeply connected to industrial and social partners.
NMITE has been awarded funding through the European Social Fund operational programme. Managed by the Department of Work and Pensions, the Herefordshire Skills for the Future project sets out to improve the labour market relevance of education and training systems under priority axis 2.2
This programme will focus on three key areas:
This grant enables us to develop enterprise skills amongst young people to inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs who can start and grow businesses to meet local business needs. Our entrepreneurship programme will help address barriers to participation and enhance education-industry interaction. It will equip students and others such as military leavers with the skills to start and grow a business to meet business needs locally.
