Posted: 31st October 2023

Due to the ever-changing landscape of business, technology, education and economy – innovation is the key to Scotland achieving its aims as a nation. Colleges are uniquely placed to help the younger generation, adult learners and businesses start their innovation journey.

The College Innovation Network needs your help, please can you complete this survey so colleges in Scotland can learn how to better engage with employers to diffuse innovation and help businesses adopt innovative practices.

“Innovation” is the buzz word of the moment, but what does it mean for business?  It can be the process of introducing new ideas, methods, products, services, or processes that result in improvements or advancements within a business.  Innovation does not always have to be the blue-sky ideas, it can be about incremental changes to improve processes and productivity. Your responses will provide valuable information that will contribute to refining strategies, improving engagement practices, foster innovation and economic growth and creating more meaningful interactions.

Survey Details:

  • Your participation is entirely voluntary.
  • The questionnaire will take approximately 6 minutes to complete.
  • Your feedback will directly impact future interactions between colleges and employers.


Survey Focus Areas:

  • Current engagement practices
  • Support, challenges and opportunities with innovation
