Small Business Charter Application form 2017/18

The revised Application form and the guidance notes for the 2017/18 academic year are now available on our website.

We have brought in a few changes, mostly re-wording to give greater clarity, and re-ordering the dimensions.

One major change is the introduction of one additional dimension.

The dimension B12 ‘Working with other business schools in the design and delivery of the small business initiative’ has been split into two separate dimensions.‘Working with other business schools in the design and delivery of the small business initiative’ remains as dimension B12, while ‘Business school’s participation in the broader university-led engagement in the design and delivery of the small business initiative’, which was previously included in the original B12 becomes a new dimension A11.

The SBC application form, therefore, now consists of 31 dimensions.

The award criteria and the process remain exactly the same. i.e A 3-year award is achieved for success in a minimum of 12 dimensions from a fairly equal distribution across three sections; and a 5-year award is achieved for success in a minimum of 21 dimensions, at least 7 or more dimensions from each section.
