This interactive webinar, bought to you by EEUK and the AGCAS Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Task Group, will focus on the new JRC (EU) report “Entrepreneurial Employee” providing an opportunity for both careers professionals and enterprise educators to explore its potential to underpin delivery for the new semester.

As a delegate you will:

  • Hear from one of the report’s authors, Dr Martin Lackeus, as he shares insight on the background and purpose of the report.
  • Engage as AGCAS and EEUK explore the importance of the entrepreneurial employee and share examples of how this framework can be used and applied within our services to support us to support our student’.
  • Share knowledge and insights from both AGCAS members and EEUK Associates to address key challenges, exchange ideas and provide a platform for debate and discussion.

  • Have an appreciation of implementing this new report into current practice (what this means for our delivery and work with students/graduates)
