If you are interested in understanding more about the breadth of the enterprise/entrepreneurship agenda and extend your own current practice, then this event has been specifically designed as an overview for all those who are keen to:

  • Meet others working in a variety of roles to deliver enterprise/entrepreneurship education
  • See and experience real-life examples of enterprise education
  • Spend the day “jargon busting” and getting to grips with key sector drivers

  • Understanding of the landscape through an appreciation of the key bodies/agencies that drive and support UK enterprise education
