As the year comes to a close, key questions are being asked in national consultations and you can still respond!
EEUK has been sharing its views, drawn from as far back as the APPG report in 2014, where we made the case for an education system fit for an entrepreneur with the ESRC horizon-scanning survey: Work, Education and Skills and following the stand taken by AGCAS to respond to the national consultation on higher education graduate outcome statistics. Share your views direct with email@example.com or contribute to your institutional response.
- Two-thirds of careers services now have responsibility for supporting student entrepreneurship, up from 37% in 2019.
- More students are enquiring about entrepreneurship. One third of careers professionals said this comes up in at least half their interactions with students, compared to just 9% in 2019.
- Almost three-quarters (74%) of careers professionals see enterprise and entrepreneurship as an intrinsic part of careers advice.
- Overall levels of confidence among careers staff in delivering enterprise and entrepreneurship support are not high and appear to have stagnated since 2019, with just over half of respondents saying they are confident.
EEUK and AGCAS are proud to be working together to support this challenge through our EEUK FASTTRACK programme, so keep your eyes out for our 2024 programme – and if you cant wait that long, check out the 3E Podcast
