The British Council is supporting HEC’s development of knowledge exchange (KE) in Pakistan. One key component of this programme is building skills, understanding and confidence in the people who will be leading on and delivering KE in the university sector – developing KE professionals who can operate in a supportive environment.
To this end the British Council has offered a programme of KE Café Masterclasses for academics, for aspirant KE professionals and for university leaders.
British Council has organised six series of Master Classes covering a wide array of subjects such as:
- Working with SMEs and Rural Communities,
- Enterprise Education,
- Student Entrepreneurship,
- Entrepreneurial University Leadership,
- Public & Community Engagement
- Strategy into Action.
These Master Classes were delivered by National Centre for Entrepreneurship Education, National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement, Cumbria University and Thomas Lawton of the UK.
