Summary of stated purpose


The aim of the BCE: Diagnostic and Self-Evaluation Workbook is to help educational establishments to review and evaluate the extent to which Business and Community Engagement processes and strategy are embedded within the mainstream activities of their institution. 


The review is in three parts:

  1. One-to-one interviews with managers of BCE-specific areas
  2. A self-evaluation workshop using the diagnostic and self-evaluation workbook, designed as part of the project
  3. The identified areas for improvement are prioritised and an action plan formed to implement improvements within the organisation


Output types



The workbook makes a series of statements  which are discussed in terms of how well the organisation meets, exceeds or fails to meet the statement in the areas of:


  • Policy and Strategy
  • Processes and Business Systems
  • Partnerships and Resources
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Measurement of Performance and Customer Perception
