UWE Bristol is delivering a 12-14 week course designed to provide individuals with high-impact workplace skills that they can immediately input into their organisation or use to help them find a new role. With one-day per week of learning, learners will be able to gain the DMI Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing and boost their CV.  

Funded by West of England Combined Authority, our 12–14-week bootcamp will give learners the skills and knowledge to become a digital marketer. Each week will focus on a specific area of digital marketing to develop fundamental knowledge and then enhance those skills through interactive activities.

The training will be offered to two separate cohorts to support more individuals as below:

Cohort 1 – Young adults (19 – 26), women and underrepresented groups currently unemployed or looking to start or progress their career in digital marketing.

Starts Wednesday 12 October 2022

Cohort 2 – individuals employed in an SME in the region, looking to develop or enhance their digital marketing skills to take on new responsibilities or a new role within their organization.

Individuals who are not employed within Digital Marketing and are looking to start a new career can register for cohort 1 and will be supported with the skills to work in the industry alongside support to boost CV and LinkedIn profiles to attract potential new employment.

Employers can put their employees forward for cohort 2, or employees can apply individually. As the employees move through the training they will develop a portfolio of work based on existing work-based problems to enable the learning to have an instant impact and they will also be supported with a personal development plan to support career development.

Once registered onto our digital marketing bootcamp you automatically become a member of the DMI which means you get access to an extensive toolkit of resources, e-books, podcasts, lessons and much more, all of which can greatly support your learning and career beyond this training.

UWE Bristol positive action internship wins outstanding partnership award

Posted on

The Strive Internship scheme, a partnership between UWE Bristol, Hargreaves Lansdown and Bristol City Council, has recently won the Institute of Student Employers Outstanding Partnership Award at their annual awards.

Inspired by the ambition of the national #10,000 Black Interns initiative, Hargreaves Lansdown in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, Bristol City Council and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) launched the regional Strive Internship scheme.

Drawing on recommendations from McGregor Smith’s 2017 Race in the Workplace Review, this five-year long positive-action scheme aims to have a long-term and sustainable impact on the lives, career and earning trajectories of young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and recent graduates in the region.

The programme created 45 paid internship opportunities, across 20 organisations in the region for Black students living or studying in the West of England.

The positive-action initiative offers Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students living or studying in the region the opportunity to gain valuable paid work experience across a wide range of sectors each year, providing critical training and development opportunities, mentoring and sponsorship. Their aim is to have organisations from across the region join together to have positive conversations around diversity and inclusion.

Jessica Tomico who sits on the board for the Strive Internship and is a Business Development Manager at UWE Bristol commented “We are delighted that the excellent work of the Strive Internship has been recognised at the Institute of Student Employers awards. The initiative is a great example of how organisations in the region can work together to have a lasting positive impact on the careers of young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and recent graduates.”

UWE Bristol celebrating world Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Day 2022 

Posted on

UWE Bristol are proud to work with many Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) across the region. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for up to 90% of businesses, 60% to 70% of employment, and they account for half of global GDP, according to the United Nations.  

To celebrate World MSME Day 2022 we are sharing some recent work and projects with MSMEs.  

In this short video, we highlight three SMEs we worked with as part of our Scale Up 4 Growth Scheme. In partnership with NatWest and Foot Anstey, we gave SMEs access to grant funding and business support to help them scale up. In the below video we hear from The Bristol Loaf, Wiper and True and 299 Lighting about how the funding has helped transform their business.  

Spotlight on Bristol 24/7  

Bristol 24/7 are one of many MSMEs we are supporting through our Skills for Clean Growth programme and our Digital Skills programme.  Below is some feedback from Meg Houghton-Gilmour, Community and Memberships Manager.

Tell us a bit about what you are doing as an organisation to support sustainability goals in the region? 

At Bristol24/7 we’re really proud to be in the process of recruiting a dedicated climate and sustainability editor. We are the first local media organisation to do so as far as we know, and we’ve created this role to engage conversation, inspire people to take action, hold authorities and companies to account and report on the positive work already ongoing in Bristol.  

This is alongside our work to become more sustainable as an organisation. We are currently working with Action Net Zero to assess our carbon footprint, from which we will set goals to minimise our impact on the planet.  

We believe that working together is the best way to tackle the climate crisis. One of the defining values of our Better Business network is sustainability and we share ideas, opportunities and resources with our business members at our quarterly meetings.  

What steps have you taken to ensure you have a diverse workforce to drive forward these aims? 

Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of all of Bristol24/7s plans. We recognise there are considerable barriers to working in journalism and we are aiming to level the playing field at every opportunity. We are continuously improving our recruitment process to make it welcoming and accessible to all those who are interested in working with us. We have redesigned our work experience programme and we are working to introduce a career ladder so that those who have their first taste of journalism with us are invited back for longer placements and interviews for entry level positions.  

We work with the most underrepresented areas of Bristol to train new journalists in our community reporters programme. Our entire team take part in setting our goals and strategy for the year ahead and every voice is heard; we believe this allows for more robust decision making and creativity which are essential when tackling problems such as the climate crisis.  

What support have you received from UWE Bristol, and how has it contributed to these aims? 

We’re extremely grateful to UWE Bristol for their support. Over the last 12 months, our team have benefitted from Digital Skills support and training which has informed our membership strategy. We now also have a stronger marketing strategy which helps us capitalise on the support from our community and grow our membership – the result of which is that we can offer more work experience placements, train more community reporters and work with charity partners. 

More recently, members of our team have also taken part in the Skills for Clean Growth workshops. We already feel more confident in addressing our own carbon output, and we look forward to attending more workshops as we set our new goals, induct our climate editor and take the next steps on our sustainability journey.  

What successes have you seen as a result of the above work? 

In the last year we have seen a 30% growth in our membership, which has provided us with the resource to grow our team, including interns from UWE Bristol, and increase our social impact work.

Scale Up 4 Growth Gloucestershire – more workshops announced for 2022

Posted on

The Scale Up 4 Growth Gloucestershire (S4GG) programme has to date provided grant funding and training to 60 businesses in the Gloucestershire region.

Delivered in partnership between UWE Bristol, Gloucestershire College, and NatWest, and funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Scale Up 4 Growth supports businesses in Gloucestershire to grow, expand and scale. The aim of the programme is to enable businesses to develop their potential, create job opportunities, get ready to scale up and overcome barriers to growth.

The latest workshops will focus on supporting businesses to navigate the adoption of new digital technologies and increase opportunities for growth.

According to the United Nations impact report, digital technologies have developed faster than any other innovation, with social media now connecting almost 50% of the entire global population.

Over the last few years, we have changed the way we work, interact, and do business forever. Digital technologies are becoming more widespread, and the government recognises digital technologies as key to the Nation’s future prosperity. From social media and e-commerce to Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Cloud Computing, these technologies can change the way we live and work.

Businesses more than ever need to invest in digital solutions to improve performance, productivity, and flexibility. But this can be a difficult landscape to navigate – how do you make the right choices for your business? Do you have the skills you need in the team? And how do you keep your business and customer information safe in this new digital world?

The Scale Up 4 Growth team has recognised the increasing need for SMEs to become more digital savvy. From design thinking and digital adoption, to cyber security and funding, the “Digital Scale-up for Your Business” workshops will help business leaders wanting to understand new digital technologies, get hands on with design thinking methods, and consider the next steps for scaling.

“Such a wide-ranging and interesting day with a great mix of speakers; it was the ideal blend of practical hands-on information and out-of-the-box thinking.  I definitely felt that I left the workshop armed with the tools to take our business to the next level!”

 Previous Workshop Attendee.

It is a unique opportunity to get practical advice from leading experts in design thinking, digital transformation, and cyber security. The next workshop will take place at Gloucestershire College in July 2022.

The workshop takes place over the course of two days and is delivered by the S4GG partnership, consisting of the University of the West of England, Natwest and Gloucestershire College. Speakers include Salus Cyber, SPARCK, and Together Digital.

The agenda combines theory and practice and includes engaging sessions on strategies to closing skills gaps, making the right digital choices, cyber security, and funding readiness.

Ideal for SMEs based in Gloucestershire of all sizes – early-stage start-ups to established companies. You might be, for example, a consultancy, a technical product business, a retailer, or a software business. What you have in common is an interest in adopting new digital technologies into your business.


About Scale Up for Growth Gloucestershire: The scheme supports small or medium businesses in the Gloucestershire LEP region (Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Forest of Dean, Stroud and Cotswolds) that are looking to grow. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), it offers eligible businesses access to grants, training, and expert support to enable them to achieve their full potential. For more information visit www.scaleup4growth.co.uk

Registrations now open for Year Two of the Help to Grow: Management Programme 

Posted on

After a successful first year of the Help to Grow: Management training programme, registrations are now open for Year Two at UWE Bristol. 

Help to Grow: Management is a 12-week practical training programme for senior managers of small and medium enterprises that aims to help boost performance, resilience, and long-term growth of their businesses. Delivered through a blend of online and face-to-face learning, the course covers strategies for growth and innovation, leading high-performance teams, and digital adoption, as well as financial management and responsible business practices. 

Learners engage in regular peer group calls, have access to 10 hours of one-to-one mentor support, hear from guest speakers and have access to join other SME leaders through both local and national alumni networks. 

By the end of the programme, participants will develop a tailored business growth plan to help increase productivity and revenue and thus take their business to the next level.  

Help to Grow: Management is 90% subsidised by the government and costs just £750. Designed to be undertaken alongside full-time work, the twelve modules require 50 hours of commitment to timetabled activities.  

In our first year, UWE Bristol has guided over one hundred SME leaders through the programme, building on the university’s proven track record of supporting SMEs across the South-West. UWE Bristol has held the Small Business Charter since 2015 indicating a strong track record in working with, supporting and developing businesses. Those completing the programme have benefitted from the expertise of UWE module facilitators – Senior Lecturers at Bristol Business School who combine academic and real-life business experience. Additionally, learners have been supported throughout the course by a dedicated project support team enabling the smooth running of the programme and excellent pastoral care.  

UWE Bristol Help to Grow: Management Alumni, Robert Ogden of Renewable Exchange commented:  

“The programme gives you a very broad coverage of a lot of relevant business topics. For me personally, the mentoring sessions were a great way to take the entire course material, distil down what I found most relevant to Renewable Exchange and then turn these into actionable changes. Some of these changes can be fairly significant, for example, we’ve now opened an office in Germany which is our first international market. But, quite a lot of the changes that you might look to make are fairly small and quick improvements and just those marginable gains that improves the way the business functions and considers problems, and I found these to be really helpful for Renewable Exchange.  

If you’re looking for ways to grow your business, and if you go in with the right open-minded attitude and can commit the necessary time to learning and taking action off the back of it, then you’ve got a really great chance of getting some success out of your investment into the programme, so I would definitely recommend it.” 

UWE Bristol Programme Director, Dan Knox commented: 

“We at Bristol Business School are rightly proud of our long-standing commitment to regional businesses and communities, and especially pleased to have supported so many businesses on the Help to Grow: Management programme.  The depth and breadth of support that this programme offers is unrivalled nationally and really gives SME leaders the time, the space and the tools to step back from day-to-day operations in order to think strategically. We look forward to welcoming many more businesses to the programme in 2022-23 and to continuing to support our alumni to find the most appropriate ways for them to continue to grow and to engage with further opportunities in the regional and national business development ecosystem.”   

UWE Bristol are running courses across the South West, including Bristol, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire and Cornwall through the academic year 2022-23.

Spotlight on Launch Space businesses

Posted on

In October 2021, Launch Space welcomed 16 innovative start-ups to receive business support, incubation, and acceleration services.

Launch Space provides free desk space and business support for aspiring entrepreneurs and early stage businesses. Launch Space is part of the University Enterprise Zone.

Through Launch Space some businesses are eligible to apply for Santander Start-up Grants which aim to remove the financial disadvantage to pursuing the entrepreneurial career path. These grants facilitate the growth of early-stage start-ups, giving them vital funds for an internship, or to develop new products and services.

Following the 6-month programme of workshops, peer learning, advisor sessions, and mentoring, the group were able to apply for the grants in early 2022.

Applications for the next cohort closed on 3 May and will begin on 18 May with a full-day induction where they will meet former members of Launch Space and hear first-hand the experiences they’ve had.

As we prepare to begin Launch Space Spring 2022, we caught up with a few of the Autumn 2021 cohort who were successful in securing these grants to see how they’re getting on.

Andy and Guy, Co-Founders, Target Student

Target Student are building the UKs first digital out-of-home advertising network specifically within student accommodation.

“Our platform will digitise advertising to students – which has traditionally been done through noticeboards and flyers. This also opens up a new channel to brands to advertise on large digital screens.

“We first applied for the Santander funding in 2021, and we got support to get our proof of concept up and running. This involved running the screens in 33 properties in 16 cities, with a reach of 30,000.

“Now we need to test our idea to see if we can measure impact. This additional funding will support with research and development of this stage, to work out which analysis platform to use so we know how many people are viewing our screens. This means we’ll have the hard data to be able to sell advertising space.”

Nicholas Du Preez, Founder AI Assist

AI Assist is a revision application for students. It combines proven study techniques with machine learning to adapt revision to the study needs of the individual student. This enables them to make the most out of their revision time and long-term memory.

“Education traditionally relies on students to memorise large amounts of information in order to pass exams, often with limited notes or information. I experienced this as a student and came up with the idea for AI Assist.

“Developing the idea was fascinating, because a lot of it is centred around understanding psychological research and revision techniques, so that you can create a revision plan that is unique to the individual.

“Everyone has areas they are weaker or stronger in when it comes to studying, and everyone has a different way of learning, so you can use machine learning to understand the best approach, or mix of approaches that is right for that individual. This is what the app does and it has already proven to increase the exam results achieved by 52%.

“The Santander funding will allow me to employ an intern who can support with the next step – turning the idea into a mobile and web application, testing it on students and ultimately improving their revision experience and their grades.”

William Testeil, Co-Founder, Famli

Famli is an app that helps families improve their health and wellbeing in a fun and simple way through engaging activities that cover exercise, nutrition, and mental health.

“Initially we were offering Famli on a B2C basis, but we’ve had a lot of interest from primary schools. This funding will go towards web support so that we can develop our app for teachers – allowing us to have more of an impact as well as providing us with a sustainable business model.

“Before getting to this point, we had been bootstrapped for two years. We’d spent our money developing the app and we were doing other work to cover our personal expenses. Through the support of Launch Space we got an initial grant from Santander, which allowed us to spend our whole working week on the business. This gave us time to hire our technical Co-Founder, which then led to us being eligible for more funding and we secured a £50k grant through Innovate UK.

“Now we’re able to get another round of funding through Santander, which will enable us to bring in new talent. Launch Space sparked a domino effect for us and gave us mentoring throughout this process.

“I’d definitely recommend Launch Space to other entrepreneurs – we’re all going through a similar process and as well the structured support it offers, it’s also just nice to pop in and connect with others going through the same journey.”

Jamie Taylor, Founder, Greener Greens

Greener Greens leverages modular vertical farming to bring the highest quality produce to chefs where and when they need it.

“I heard about Launch Space through UWE Bristol. I missed the first day because I was representing the university at the Santander Entrepreneurship Awards, so I was at Wembley Stadium pitching instead!

“These contacts helped me to bring on my first intern, which opened my eyes to the benefits of getting this support. As a startup you have no money and you need a lot of work done, so that’s why I applied for the funding. Connecting with the other businesses at Launch Space has given me an insight into the skills I need to bring in.

“Now I have the funding I want to find someone who can design mock ups of the software we need for our customers (chefs) to easily interact with our farms, and who can assess the use cases for the application. This work is essential for building our MVP and it is an area that is outside my own skill set.”

Time for SMEs in the West of England to seize the opportunities from the transition to net zero

Posted on

Calling SMEs across the West of England region – now is the time to plan for net zero with fully funded support from the Skills for Clean Growth programme.
 
The pace of change in the economy and legislative environment is accelerating as business leaders and politicians look to reach ambitious targets to reduce carbon intensity at a regional, national and international level. The West of England has gone beyond the commitments of central government with the ambition to reach net zero across the region by 2030.

At the same time, consumers, businesses and investors are growing in appetite for products and services that have a positive environmental impact and are driving decarbonisation.

By embracing low carbon practices, you will help position your business to prosper in this rapidly changing world.

Skills for Clean Growth will support you to grow your business in a sustainable way by upskilling your management team and employees to drive change and the adoption of low carbon practices.

Free expert support from the Skills for Clean Growth programme

The Skills for Clean Growth programme (part of the West of England’s Workforce for the Future Programme and being delivered by UWE Bristol and NatWest) is supporting SMEs to manage the risks and embrace the opportunities from the transition to net zero. Driven by the needs of businesses on the programme, training is focused on support that is immediately actionable.
 
SMEs are supported with analysing their skills needs & action planning before being given access to bespoke training, resources, and peer networks to help reach their targets.

Current workshops topics include Green Energy Procurement and Management, Measuring Carbon Emissions, and Behavioural Change, with new training and resources continually developed in response to the needs of businesses engaging with the programme.

Register now to start your clean growth journey .

“There is a climate emergency and everyone is going to have to do their bit to help build a greener future. As we change the way we make goods and retrofit our homes we will need a newly skilled workforce. That is of course also a significant opportunity to create high skilled, well paid, green jobs. I’m pleased to be able to offer this support so workers will get the skills they need to meet the demands of a greener economy.”
Dan Norris, Mayor, West of England Combined Authority
