Enterprise and entrepreneurship education: Guidance for UK higher education providers

This guidance has been developed by representatives drawn from, and acting on behalf of, the enterprise education community, with support from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). It is intended to be of practical help to those working with students in higher education to foster their skills in enterprise and entrepreneurship.

The guidance acknowledges that, currently, provision for enterprise and entrepreneurship education is structured differently across different providers - some providers offer stand-alone degree programmes in the subject area, while others offer parts of awards, and others still offer training and development as part of careers education and preparation for employment. It also recognises that students may gain practical skills and experience through participation in extracurricular schemes, such as membership of student societies or participation in 'start-up' schemes. The guidance is not prescriptive about how provision should be structured or delivered; rather, it offers a point of reference that may be helpful for all educators, whether they are subject specialists or part of an enterprise-specific delivery team. The emphasis in the guidance is, however, on curricular rather than extracurricular learning.
