A series of case studies to share good practice in enterprise education has been published today by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
The resource provides higher education providers with the background, outcomes and impact of 36 projects already undertaken to address the employability of students through enterprise education. The case studies include:
• consultancy projects as an alternative to dissertations;
• a credit-bearing enterprise educator component that compliments an existing teacher training qualification;
• a Diploma for personal and professional skills to ensure engineers studying at doctoral level are trained to become leaders of industry.
Maureen Tibby, Consultant in Academic Practice at the HEA, said: “This resource seeks to share, disseminate and encourage good practice in enterprise education across the disciplines. The case studies provided represent higher education providers across the UK and provide diverse and innovative approaches to addressing enterprise education at a discipline and university level.”
The publication, Enhancing employability through enterprise education: examples of good practice in higher education, also includes a series of profiles of organisations that can support HE providers in addressing enterprise education.
The case studies were launched today at the HEA’s Successful students: enhancing employability through enterprise education event, held in Cardiff.
