Birkbeck’s Enterprise Pathway extended

Lesley Strachan -Trainer

Birkbeck’s Enterprise Pathways programme is extending its offering this year for students looking to develop their business skills and gain experience of running an enterprise.

They are introducing SimVenture Evolution to a group of students who have taken part in previous enterprise initiatives on campus and will now take their learning a step further.

The aim is to develop a range of skills from Business & Financial Management to key Employability & Entrepreneurial talents to progress their knowledge in a challenging setting.

Teams will compete to be the most profitable company – but the focus is for all participants to complete the course with new knowledge and skills to take into their own ventures. May the best team win!

I have just completed the tutor training for staff involved in facilitating the module and the feedback is excellent and includes questions such as:

  1. How likely is it that you would recommend your instructor to other academics? – 100%
  2. How knowledgeable was your instructor? – Very knowledgeable
  3. How clearly did your instructor explain the course material? – Very clearly
  4. How concerned was your instructor you were learning the material you needed? – Very concerned
  5. How organized for class was your instructor? – Very organized
  6. How well did your instructor answer your questions? – Very well
  7. Was the speed with which your instructor presented the course material too fast, too slow, or about right? – The right amount
  8. Any areas where your instructor did particularly well? – Discussing around the points made on the PowerPoint slides was really helpful – I got a good grasp of how to deliver the session coming up.
  9. Finally, is there further feedback/testimonial that you would like to provide or anything else you would like to say? – Very approachable – I know I can get in touch when stuck and I’ve come away with a good understanding of next steps and moving ahead with the programme, JD.
