Leeds Trinity University is in the top 25% for employability in England (HESA Destination of Leavers Survey 2014). Leeds Trinity is committed to improving students’ employability and enterprise skills and graduate job prospects through its successful placement programme.
We support our undergraduate, postgraduate students and alumni in their entrepreneurial journey through modules and guidance offered by Business, Management and Marketing department in cooperation with the Careers and Employability Department.
Leeds Trinity University has recently opened the Trinity Enterprise centre. Officially opened on 4th June by Roger Marsh, Chairman, The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, the centre offers open plan working space, meetings rooms and access to ongoing mentoring for students and recent graduates who are starting their own business. It is also home to student social enterprises, such as Trinity Vision 2:0, a digital marketing team run by students from Leeds Trinity.
The Enterprise Centre is also home to businesses and social enterprises from the local community. This allows our students who are starting their own business to work directly with local businesses and gain mentoring support from them.
Our alumni entrepreneurs are also encouraged to share their knowledge and experience with our students by giving guest lectures, holding informal Q&A sessions, or becoming involved in our Business Start up Master Class and Dragon’s Den style competitions.
We are also proud to have recently been awarded a research grant from EEUK. The project develops a specific intervention based on sand tray work, borrowed from sand play therapy, for use with student entrepreneurs in developing their business idea. In the early process of entrepreneurial learning nascent entrepreneurs needs support in making their abstract business ideas more concrete in order to successfully plan their project, pitch their ideas and work collaboratively.
