Embedding Enterprise in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Curriculum Collaborative Project

A collaborative project for embedding enterprise in learning and teaching

This collaborative project is currently running and is now closed for new participants

Enterprise and entrepreneurship education can add value to the journey of learners, whether they are interested in starting a business venture or being enterprising when working for someone else in the private, public or voluntary and community sectors. A growing evidence base highlights the value of developing enterprising and entrepreneurial skills in learners; both in terms of facilitating the creation of new ventures while in education and upon graduation, but also by enhancing their employability.  

The Embedding Enterprise in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences project was a shared project involving Advance HE, SFEDI, the UK Government recognised Sector Skills Organisation for enterprise and business support, and higher education providers across the sector.

The participation was £6,000 for Advance HE members and £7,000 for non-members.

Why Advance HE?

Since 2016 more than 60 institutions have participated in Advance HE collaborative and shared projects. Projects are cost effective and are delivered as a focused period of activity. They are grounded in sharing excellent practice, developing innovative approaches and assessing the impact of change. Institutions involved in the projects benefit from focused support on key issues, a safe space to share challenges and build networks of support, and implementing meaningful change.

This project drew from Advance HE’s work in the area including:

  • The Advance HE Enterprise and Entrepreneurship in Higher Education Framework

  • Advance HE Symposia including ‘pedagogy for employability’ (2019) and ‘an enterprising mind set for employability’ (2018)

Advance HE Enterprise and Entrepreneurship in Higher Education Framework

The framework is centred on the ways in which enterprise and entrepreneurship education can add value to the journey of the learner, whether they are interested in starting their own venture or being enterprising when working for someone else in the private, public or voluntary and community sector. There is an evidence base that highlights the value of developing enterprising and entrepreneurial skills in learners, not only in terms of facilitating the creation of new ventures whilst in education, and upon graduation, but also in enhancing their employability.
