Enterprise education equips students with the attributes, capabilities and skills that enhance their employability and enable them to be entrepreneurial in a range of settings including employment. It is “the process of equipping students (or graduates) with an enhanced capacity to generate ideas and the skills to make them happen”. (QAA 2012).
This HEA resource seeks to share, disseminate and encourage good practice in enterprise education across the disciplines. The case studies provided represent higher education providers (HEPs) across the UK and provide diverse and innovative approaches to addressing enterprise education at a discipline and university level. Profiles of organisations that can support HEPs in addressing enterprise education are also included.
