Enterprise for all – engaging the unengaged

10:00 am - 4:00 pm 29/06/2018

Aston Triangle, Birmingham, B4 7ET, West Midlands


Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear from students involved with the delivery of an EEUK funded project looking at student engagement with enterprise education.
  • Learn about a range of approaches that institutions have taken to engage students with enterprise education.
  • Consider the language used in promoting enterprise education and how this might have an impact on take-up.
  • Engage in discussion about the challenges and opportunities of engaging more diverse student audiences with enterprise education.
  • Network and exchange good practice with enterprise educators from across the UK.


For most students enterprise education is not compulsory. If we are to encourage a greater take up of enterprise education and reach out to more diverse audiences it is essential that we understand what it is that puts some students off enterprise and what we could do attract their interest.

This event will share results from student led-research at Aston University and the University of Gloucestershire, which is currently being funded by EEUK project funding and is looking at the reasons why students do not engage with optional enterprise activities.

The programme will then provide a range of examples of how universities have worked successfully to broadenparticipation in enterprise education both within the curriculum and through co-curricular initiatives.

Speakers and facilitators include

  • Student researchers from Aston and Gloucestershire introduced by Dr Anna Rebmann (Aston) and Jason Evans (Gloucestershire)
  • Dr Shakil Ahmed, Aston University
  • Vassil Rachkov, University of Gloucestershire
  • Dan Henderson, University of the Arts London
