Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE)
Feasibility Study - Embedding Business Knowledge, Practice and Entrepreneurship

The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) is Britain's national academy of engineering.

This project, initiated in 2017, looks at how business knowledge, practice and entrepreneurship can be embedded into the Further Education (FE) engineering learning experience for both full and part-time students.

The feasibility study aims to identify how UK plc can unlock the entrepreneurial potential of its technical workforce for future business success by exploring current practice; evaluating what practices are optimal and whcih have the potential to be replicated; and, gauging the appetite in the FE sector for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) resources for FE STEM practitioners. 

The study will benefit FE STEM lecturers and students and other FE STEM stakeholders. Findings will be available in the spring/summer of 2018.
