Developing enterprise and entrepreneurship in higher education

July 2018

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

This seminar focused on further action that could be taken to improve enterprise education, and support student and graduate entrepreneurship - examining the roles of the Government, universities, the business community and others.

Delegates discussed the QAA guidance on enterprise and entrepreneurship education, which is designed to support institutions in embedding enterprise within the curriculum across subject disciplines.

Attendees also considered the potential impact of metrics in the new TEF taking the number of graduate start-ups, and student involvement in enterprise and entrepreneurship, as evidence of student outcomes and learning gain - as well as further action that might be taken to encourage institutional support and investment.

Further sessions examined best practice case studies of embedding enterprise into the curriculum and developing an entrepreneurial culture on campus, as well as the different approaches by universities and businesses in providing ‘accelerator’ or incubator-style support.
