ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION are a major focus of the Nova Scotia Community College. As part of this work we are presenting the sixth year of this exciting program opportunity!
NSCC would like to announce an opportunity for one employee from any of the five Schools to participate in the Cultural Entrepreneurship Program in Grenada in 2019 and 2020. The employee will make a commitment that will last two years. The employee selected this year will serve as the ‘junior’ faculty and in 2020 will become the ‘senior’ faculty and will mentor the ‘junior’ faculty selected (pending project funding in 2019). The senior faculty member for the 2019 program is Nancy Harvey, Adult Learning Program Faculty at the Akerley Campus.
The role of the selected employee will be to work collaboratively with the ‘senior’ faculty member and the students in all the pre-departure phases of the program but will not travel to Grenada in 2019. Upon program approval for May 2020, the ‘junior’ faculty will become the ‘senior’ faculty and participate in the travel component of the program.
Interested employees are asked to review the information below, including the Criteria for Selection, and to submit the online application form. NSCC International and the senior faculty member will review all expressions of interest.
The 2019 NSCC Cultural Entrepreneurship Program will provide an opportunity for students from all NSCC Schools to travel to Grenada in the Caribbean to participate in a two-week program in May 2019. NSCC is offering this program in partnership with the T.A. Marryshow Community College from Grenada (http://www.tamcc.edu.gd/). The focus of the program will be to research, analyze and document creative and cultural industry traditions in Grenada. NSCC program participants will collaborate on the 2019 CEP with counterparts from the T.A. Marryshow Community College (TAMCC).
About Grenada and T.A. Marryshow Community College
The State of Grenada (www.grenadagrenadines.com/#) is made up of three islands, namely, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. It is the most southern of the Caribbean island chain known as the Windward Islands. Grenada is also known as the "Island of Spice" because of the production of nutmeg and mace crops of which Grenada is one of the world's largest exporters. The size of Grenada is 344 square kilometers, with an estimated population of 110,000. The capital of Grenada is St. George’s and tourism is the main economic sector.
T.A. Marryshow Community College (TAMCC – www.tamcc.edu.gd/) is the only publicly funded post-secondary institution in Grenada. TAMCC has four campuses and offers a wide range of programs in three schools – School of Arts, Sciences and Professional Studies, (SASPS), the School of Applied Arts and Technology (SAAT), and the School of Continuing Education (SCE).
In addition to the 2014, 2015 , 2016, 2017 and 2018 Cultural Entrepreneurship Programs, NSCC also partnered with TAMCC on a three-year Government of Canada co-funded project under the CARICOM Education for Employment (C-EFE – http://www.collegesinstitutes.ca/what-we-do/international-partnerships/efe-overview/efe-caricom/) Program that is managed by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan). NSCC assisted TAMCC with the development of a new two-year program focused on cultural and creative industries with strong emphasis on entrepreneurship and self-employment. The 2019 CEP will contribute to this future program with new research data in the form of visual and narrative testimonials and relevant case studies for some of the program courses.
