NESCol has joined fellow Scottish colleges in the launch of national survey designed to enhance collaboration with employers throughout the country.

The study will help build understanding of the way in which colleges engage with organisations and support innovation.

Duncan Abernethy, NESCol’s Director of Business Development, said: “Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at the College and our partnerships with employers are delivering fantastic results.

“We want to grow and evolve our provision and the input of employers is vital to help us do that. Whether with those who already have a relationship with NESCol or those who have no existing links, we are interested in exploring the role colleges play in fostering innovation and providing the foundation for economic growth.”

The survey takes around six minutes to complete and focuses on current engagement between colleges and businesses, suggestions for improvement and the support, challenges and opportunities surrounding innovation.
