Funding Opportunities


Policies related to enterprise education are incredibly important to our members as we know that policy decisions frequently impact on the funding available to deliver enterprise education, as well as mandating what areas of activity should be measured. For example, in England, the changing distribution of the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) has directly influenced the scale of enterprise education delivery in many universities.

EEUK works hard to build productive relationships with those who influence policy in the Westminster and devolved UK governments. Through our membership, we respond to consultations, such as those for the Industrial Strategy and Knowledge Exchange Framework, and we contribute to publications such as the QAA Guidance on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education.

At Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) our purpose is to enable excellence in enterprise education. The development of this individual award for enterprise educators supports our ambitions “to help the sector to continue to increase the scale, scope and effectiveness of enterprise and entrepreneurship education and practice” by providing national recognition for those working as enterprise educators.

The EEUK membership spans the full range of roles and responsibilities that support enterprise and entrepreneurship. EEUK recognises that many staff bring expertise from their own discipline and/or previous employment/experience to deliver excellent enterprise education across their institution.

It is in recognition of the personal development and career needs of EEUK members and others working in the sector, that EEUK created this professional standard for all those working to deliver entrepreneurial outcomes in others.

EEUK has created three professional pathways that support staff to be recognised for their work as an enterprise educator and acknowledge this important diversity across our sector. These three recognised pathways to Fellowship – academic, practitioner or influencer – ensure that all those who are contributing to the enterprise eco-system are acknowledged equally within this new award – the EEUK Fellowship.
