We achieve this by connecting educators and practitioners so they learn from each other and are inspired to increase the scale, scope and effectiveness of their enterprise and entrepreneurship education and practice.
To achieve this we provide research funding, bursaries, practical resources, tools and techniques. Our members and extended global network connect and share practice through our international conference (IEEC), Enterprise Exchange events, webinars, ETC Toolkit and forum. Celebrating the impact of enterprise education is also important and is achieved through the National Enterprise Educator Awards and our Impact Showcase.
Related to enterprise education is an important ambition. We provide input to UK government policy consultations and our Directors and Honorary Fellows influence international policy change through the EU, OECD and United Nations. Our board and members recently made major contributions to the new QAA Guidance on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education.
If your organisation joins, you will have the opportunity to develop your professional practice as an enterprise educator or practitioner. Exchange good practice at free to attend events, receive a 28% discount to attend the leading global enterprise education conference (IEEC), apply for a bursary to develop your practice or apply for funding for a small research project – even if you are not a researcher. But most important of all, join a connected network to share and learn from others.
Universities, colleges and other organisations that join EEUK are well placed to develop and embed enterprise education right across their organisations. For a small annual fee, all academics and staff in enterprise, careers and other departments can attend free events, receive conference discounts, apply for bursaries and research funding and connect with educators across the UK and beyond. You can also raise your enterprise profile through hosting events and contributing to member newsletters and our impact showcase.
