Creative Spark: Higher Education Enterprise Programme is a five-year initiative to help develop the creative economy and enterprise skills across seven countries in Central Asia, (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan), South Caucasus (Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia) and Ukraine.
The programme has been developed in response to an underdeveloped creative sector and a demand for entrepreneurship training in these countries. Creative industries have driven economic growth in the UK. We want to use this experience and expertise to support sustainable development and social welfare.
The programme Creative Spark programme has three key aims:
- to develop partnerships involving universities and creative institutions in the UK and programme countries to drive enterprise training and establish enterprise centres
- to deliver enterprise skills training packages to students and creative entrepreneurs - ranging from pitching ideas to starting a business and protecting intellectual property.
- to deliver English language skills through a range of new British Council digital learning content. This will include digital learning platforms, online courses and a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) courses focused on English for entrepreneurship
This project is part of the Creative Spark: Higher Education Enterprise Programme and funded by the British Council.
