EntreComp: Keeping enterprise education relevant to students in a time of uncertainty

Thursday May 13th, 10am to 1pm


Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain insight into how the EntreComp framework has been used to map modules and programmes, and as a learning and teaching tool
  • Consider how EntreComp can be used to support and build students’ confidence at this uncertain time
  • Acquire practical tips and approaches for immediate use with students
  • Reflect on current practice and gain new insight
  • Network and explore further opportunities to work together and continue the conversation


This EEUK online Enterprise Exchange event, delivered in partnership with London South Bank University and the University of the West of England, will be a practical workshop demonstrating how students can be supported using the EntreComp Framework to develop self-awareness and language that may help them to operate in an uncertain economic environment.

Contributors will demonstrate through practical exercises how the EntreComp Framework can be used for mapping the enterprise content of modules and how it has been used to support and build students’ confidence to articulate their skills and experience. Examples presented will include where the Framework has been used to effect leadership and change mindsets with students who are at the frontline of the health and creative sectors. Debate and discussion on how EntreComp could be used and adapted to attendees’ own settings to innovate and keep enterprise relevant to students will be encouraged.

EEUK will close this event with an overview of supporting materials and the launch of a new EntreComp initiative which will support institutions in their delivery.

Target Audience:

  • New and existing enterprise educators working in Higher Education
  • Academics in the field of Arts & Creative Industries, Health sector and those not traditionally engaged with enterprise education
  • Educators who are curious to explore how they may apply EntreComp immediately and effectively
