Our Incubation programme helps students get their ideas off the ground – whether it’s a social enterprise, awareness raising campaign or event, or a community volunteering project.

We believe that when it comes to new ideas, students benefit from a combination of tangible resources and tailored support from staff and mentors. We’ve got a range of training sessions and individual resources focused on their own potential to lead, their value proposition, their understanding of their audience/users and their financial sustainability.

No matter what stage a student comes to us at, whether it’s just an idea in their head or something they’ve already piloted, our staff are trained in coaching skills to enable the student to identify where they want to get to and what help they will need along the way.
