Framework for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education

Approaches to teaching and learning, by their very nature, often encompass entrepreneurial learning. Regardless of whether these are labelled as enterprise and entrepreneurship education, the enhancement of appropriate skills, knowledge, attributes and behaviours necessary for transforming creative ideas into actions are of ever-increasing importance across all disciplinary areas.  

This framework is designed to inform and support the activities of those educators who interact with students through the development and delivery of enterprise and entrepreneurship curriculum and/or extracurricular activity. 

It will be of use to senior managers with responsibility for enterprise, employability and external engagement, as well as staff involved with supporting the development of businesses and social enterprises through executive education programmes and innovation-led enterprise support initiatives .

The framework is part of the Essential Frameworks for Enhancing Student Success series.
