Description

BACKGROUND:
Entrepreneurship involves developing a new venture outside an existing organisation whilst intrapreneurs are known as corporate entrepreneurships which is a relatively new concept that focuses on employees of an organisation that have many of the attributes of entrepreneurs. An Intrapreneur can be defined as an employee that takes risks to solve a given problem, develops a new venture within an existing organisation, exploits new opportunities and creates economic value. There is evidence that intrapreneurship helps managers to renew and revitalise their business, to innovate, and to enhance the organisation’s overall performance (Antoncic and Hisrich 2001). Intrapreneurship is an important element in organisational, economic and social development.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
