While no QAA Subject Benchmark exists for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, QAA guidance has been published. This programme follows the guidance in that it includes an emphasis on key theories of entrepreneurship in the economy and society as a subject discipline while further focussing on processes of identifying and developing new enterprise opportunities. The programme will further support students in developing their personal development in relation to subject-domain knowledge, personal skills development and independent learning. Furthermore, the programme meets QAA guidance through access to alumni, industry advisors and practical enterprise projects within the curriculum and through the Universities wider extra-curricular provision.

Programme specification:

At the end of the programme students should:

- understand issues, concepts, events and analyses informed by knowledge across or in aspects of Social Policy;
- exercise the generic and specific intellectual abilities relevant to Social Policy;
- demonstrate an understanding of issues, approaches and techniques related to research or scholarship in Policy;
- the ability, demonstrated through the production of a dissertation, to proactively formulate ideas and hypotheses and to develop, implement and execute plans by which to evaluate these, and to critically and creatively evaluate current issues, research and scholarship in the field of Social Policy.
critically appreciate forms of entrepreneurship and enterprising activity in relation to economic and societal outcomes on local and global levels
critically examine relevant enterprise development processes in relation to appropriate personal, industry and subject-specific issues
recognise and understand the opportunities for enterprise within the provision of social and public services.

The programme will:

Offer students an opportunity to combine the study of Social Policy with Enterprise. This combination of study should prove particularly relevant given the changing nature of welfare provision in the UK. It will allow students a comprehensive understanding of the complexities involved in the delivery and management of welfare provision, the ways in which enterprise can be utilised to respond to human need and thus equip students for employment within this increasingly diverse sector.

Form part of the campus-wide portfolio of activities and student education opportunities that support Enterprise at the University of Leeds. As a result, successful applicants undertaking this programme of study will benefit from opportunities to work with students engaged in enterprising activities from different disciplines, while further being able to access support and information from a range of related student services.

The inclusion of enterprise modules delivered in conjunction with the Leeds Enterprise Centre provides a distinctive flavour to this programme and will offer students the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of creativity, business development and finance.
