Research and Enterprise Strategy

Strategy Statement

The BIMM Group believes that teaching and learning across all of its colleges and courses should be informed and enriched by professional practice and scholarship.

It is acknowledged that within the context of a teaching-intensive alternative provider, it is not possible to either expect or support all academic staff to undertake research.

Therefore, the BIMM Group’s Research and Enterprise Strategy seeks to:

  • Identify and support the as yet relatively small number of staff who are currently undertaking research through the provision of financial and management support and development and dissemination opportunities;


  • Identify and support research potential through support for postgraduate study and the provision of a programme of activities and opportunities aimed at developing early career researchers.
