We were delighted to see so many Fashion Management students achieving their level 2 ‘Innovation Catalyst’ award from the Scottish Institute of Enterprise in November.

Innovation skills are recognised as increasingly important amongst graduates and SISA is a new awards programme that helps support and develop these through designated workshops and module accreditation. The Scottish Institute for Enterprise is running the programme in partnership with four of Scotland’s Innovation Centres (Digital Health and Care Institute, CENSIS, The Datalab and the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre).

The students attended a workshop in Glasgow and were tasked with working in multi disciplinary teams to explore the future of our resources – inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Scottish Government was one of the first to sign up to these goals in 2015 and issued the National Performance Framework as a blueprint for implementing these at a national and local level in 2018.  Well done to our students  – good luck for level 3, we hope you apply!
