Selecting the right methods of teaching can enhance the student experience. This site has been developed by the University of South Wales to support you as you seek to use new approaches to build skills and confidence in your learners as they work to extend their subject knowledge.
Building upon the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Subject benchmarking, this site will lead you through your Subject Discipline to identify the enterprising skills that can be developed in class. You will then be guided to a range of “tried and tested” techniques that support the development of these enterprise skills. This selection of ETC “How-To” Guides are presented in a standardised format that will support you to embed these techniques into your teaching.
These guides are also complemented by real-life subject-based case examples. These case examples show how academics in your subject area work with their students and the impact that this has had on their learners.
By starting at the ETC Toolkit home page, you are invited to “Select your Subject”. Click on the subject you have selected as best representing your course/teaching.
Once you are through to this subject, you will see the range of QAA Benchmark Statements that we have listed in this area. Each of these are ‘clickable’ links so chose the programme that best reflects your teaching and click through to see the enterprise skills identified within the QAA Guidance for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education (2018) for your subject.
As you scroll down, you will see a suggested list of “How to Guides” that will address the skill development that the QAA benchmark statement identified as matching the thematic graduate outcomes listed within the QAA Guidance for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education (2018). Click on right hand arrow to release the full “How to Guide”.
Below the How to Guides you will find Subject Case Examples from your subject area, or a related one. These provide outlines of how different techniques were used in teaching and the impact that this had on the students.
You will then find How to Guides and Subject Case Examples which support you if you are Embedding Entrepreneurship.
As you scroll to the end of the page, you will find Additional Resources to support you further.

The ETCToolkit is "built by educators, for educators" as it showcases ‘tried and tested’ materials and case examples. It offers support and suggestions from those that have been working with, or continue to work directly with students, and is effectively created by ‘academics for academics’.
