 Phoenix 159 cover

This issue of Phoenix highlights collaborative activity within higher education institutions to synergise careers, employability and enterprise. The partnership working on show serves to highlight how enterprise activity can be nurtured across structural boundaries to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem.

As graduates are increasingly required to demonstrate greater career agility to navigate an ever complex and transient labour market, a deeper understanding of what it is to be entrepreneurial has never been more important.

Careers and employability practitioners are using new language and switching messaging away from the narrow definitions of enterprise and entrepreneurialism, to empower students to explore what being entrepreneurial means in their own career context.
