Strengthening the Enterprise Pipeline: The role of universities

Thursday 22nd October 2020 10am – 1pm

Online

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop their understanding of the enterprise pipeline/experiences students have before university.
  • Gain ideas from practice around schools outreach and intervention development with Schools/Faculties of Education.
  • Expand knowledge with which to make more credible/successful connections with schools of education or schools.
  • Connect and network with colleagues who are interested in/working on this area.

Summary

At IEEC2019, Lord Bilimoria suggested that enterprise education ‘needed to start in schools’, a sentiment expressed in Lord Young’s Enterprise for All report, which recommends a ‘captive, continuous and coherent’ enterprise education journey through school and beyond to further and higher education.

This event will explore how universities are taking a role supporting and engaging with this agenda, developing delegates’ understanding of the policy context and learning from examples of school outreach, engagement with universities’ Schools/Faculties of Education and CPD practice. It will be of interest to university enterprise teams who want to develop or expand their provision to connect with schools and colleges, and to staff and colleagues who are interested in, or developing their skills and knowledge in this area.

The event will be comprised of a series of sessions, facilitated by EEUK Associates who have experience of working in this area. The session will include a mix of presentations, discussion, and sharing of initiatives and activities that are being used in practice. There will be opportunities to ask questions, comment and join the discussions throughout.

The audience will identify the role universities can play in supporting the enterprise pipeline and consider school focussed provision and how it effects the enterprise interest and capability of university students. They will have a better grasp on policy and contextual issues which might hinder or help the enterprise education pipeline, as well as different approaches, such as schools outreach or engaging the next generation of educators through internal Schools/Faculties of Education.
