China Entrepreneurship Educators Programme

Carol Langston, Head of CREATE, the entrepreneurship-learning centre at Inverness College UHI has just returned from an exciting trip to China. Last year, she co-developed the China Entrepreneurship Educators Programme, to address the professional development needs of lecturers now required by the Chinese government to embed entrepreneurship within every tertiary programme. In Yangzhou, Carol worked with 65 academics to help them appreciate changing approaches to entrepreneurial education. Feedback was excellent with 100% of lecturers wanting to try new techniques with their students. The Principal said that we had set an excellent example and ‘inspired their potential’ and hoped to extend this co-operation.

Nurturing Next Generation of Scottish Entrepreneurs

School pupils are setting their sights on future careers as business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators thanks to a unique new partnership that brings specialist training and resources to Scottish teachers.  CREATE, in partnership with, Scotland’s Enterprising Schools, have developed the Enterprising Practitioner Programme which has been accessed by over 900 teachers since it launched in October last year. Carol Langston, head of Create, commented: “This demonstrates a growing recognition for the value enterprising skills bring to workplaces throughout Scotland, as well as the wider economy. Our teachers are key role models for the next generation and it is vital that we support them to bring entrepreneurial skills to the school curriculum.”

Inspiring Pitching Across the Highlands

CREATE as part of the Bridge 2 Business programme deliver workshops that enable students to develop their enterprising skills and be more confident, creative and realistic about the world of work, including self-employment.


Six students from partner colleges of the University of the Highlands and Islands (North Highland College, Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and Inverness College) were finalists in the 2016 Inverness College UHI run Business Competition.  Shortlisted from over 130 applicants, students were able to pitch their business idea to a panel of expert judges for a chance to win a share of the £8000 prize money.
