Delegates had the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on current best practice and the likely future direction of enterprise and entrepreneurship education
  • Gain new ideas related to technology, pedagogy and putting ideas into practice
  • Understand how the updated QAA Guidelines relate to future practice
  • Hear first-hand from the experts to help shape the future direction of Enterprise Education
  • Network with enterprise educators and specialists from other universities and the private sector.


This Enterprise Exchange event explored how University enterprise education can build on current best practice to meet the challenge of future needs. There were three sub themes, pedagogy, practice (co-curricular) and technology: these will run throughout the day. It was an active day with the focus on discussion, led by key insights from leaders in different aspects of enterprise education.

Participants got to know each other through the activities while identifying what is currently perceived as ‘best practice’ under our three themes. We also looked at the context set by the new QAA guidelines and EntreComp. What will their impact be on future curriculum development?  This included an overview followed by table discussions , with the final task to shape three action points under each of the three themes.
