Project description

This KTP initiative blossoms from a decade-long partnership between ACH and the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) at Aston University. Our various collaborative projects in the past focused on entrepreneurship, social integration, organisational productivity, and employment support underscore the imperative to comprehensively assess the social and economic impacts of ACH’s refugee integration programs, emphasising the crucial role of commercialisation in propelling ACH’s growth and fostering innovation.

The key objectives of this project are:

Developing a Holistic Impact Metric (HIM) tool that captures the economic and social impacts of ACH’s refugee integration services
Designing and developing customer value propositions and business models to capture values from HIM
Creating and delivering bespoke service programmes on a commercial basis for clients
Managing stakeholder relationships
The project is strategic for ACH as the HIM tool could evident ACH’s effectiveness and impacts of approaches, help identify potential customer segmentations and inform the value proposition of ACH in commercialisation.

As a KTP Associate you will also develop a broad set of skills in project management, stakeholder engagement, and involvement in the delivery of a strategic project in an innovative business. The skills developed during the project will enable you to broaden your future career opportunities.
