Adding Value through Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education in Higher Education

The collaborative project will provide an opportunity to identify how enterprise and entrepreneurship can add value to both students and other stakeholders.

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 skills, values, attributes and behaviours relevant to all manner of employment opportunities. 

The collaborative project is 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. This project will take place online.

The cost of participation is £5,000 for Advance HE members and £6,000 for non-members. Due to the high demand, we are reviewing running a second cohort. You can register your interest in this cohort and for further updates. We anticipate the project will take place from June 2021 to March 2022.
