About the course

Are you looking to ‘fast track’ your understanding of enterprise and entrepreneurship?

Are you new to this area or seeking to top up or check your understanding?

You may be a careers adviser, coach, Head of Service or other career professional working in higher education. Join EEUK, the national membership body for enterprise educators, and members of the AGCAS Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Task Group for two short morning sessions if you feel that you are:

  • increasingly responding to questions about start-up or freelancing
  • helping students showcase their skills/development from work experiences in the gig economy
  • ready for a refresher on all things ‘enterprise and entrepreneurship’ to ensure you can support the entrepreneurial ambitions of others.

If you are interested in understanding more about the UK enterprise and entrepreneurship agenda, or want to extend your developing practice to support the ambitions of your students, then this online event has been specifically designed for you! It will provide an overview for those keen to:

  • connect with others working in careers across a variety of roles (support staff, advisers, coaches, mentors, and Head of Service) to provide signposting or support to those considering business start-up, or how best to articulate the skills learnt across a wide range of work experiences. This will include the gig economy, portfolio working and seller sites, such as Ebay or Etsy.
  • “jargon bust” the language of enterprise and entrepreneurship.
  • gain an appreciation of key changes in the sector and the reports, tools and resources that can help you.
  • join a showcase of examples of practice from across enterprise education and student/graduate start-up.
  • explore student needs with like-minded colleagues and sector experts to share practice.
  • build a support network by making the most of the online opportunities to talk to, share with and learn from those who are in similar and related roles.

Still not sure? Listen to the 3E Podcast to hear us in discussion to whet your appetite and get in the zone.

Takeaways will include:

  • insights into delivering enterprise and entrepreneurship education from experienced practitioners, careers professionals and advisers.
  • understanding of student needs within the sector landscape through an appreciation of the key bodies/agencies that drive and support UK enterprise education.
  • a network, tools and online resources that will assist you in delivering for your students.
