Why Embed Enterprise Education into your Curriculum?
The UK government has been exploring ways to enhance young people’s employability skills that will see Enterprise Education embedded within the FE curriculum.
Free Resources to Support Enterprise Education in your Curriculum
The Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies have developed a free online resource for FE Schools & Colleges for any FE student to learn how to start a business and essential employability skills. This 2-week course will launch on Monday 14th September 2015, and is designed to support teaching these skills in an engaging and interactive way using videos, voting and discussion boards for teachers/students to interact with real-world issues & receive expert advice.
Find out more about the course and register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or contact the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies on telephone: 0113 3437312.
