Releasing potential through educational policy,
The Government has set out its plan to put the UK on the path to sustainable, long-term economic growth, through private sector investment, enterprise and innovation. Such is the belief of the Government, that only by stimulating and encouraging enterprise, will the country move out of recession. In the current economic global climate it is vital to foster a new generation of social and commercial entrepreneurs; entrepreneurs who can add value to communities, bring innovation to existing businesses and who can create employment for themselves and others, with confidence and ambition.
The terms Enterprise and Entrepreneurship are often misused and misunderstood. This is important when considering the development, support and environment needed for these vital dynamics.
The Coalition Government wants to make this decade ‘The most entrepreneurial and dynamic in our history’. (Vince Cable, BIS) in 2010 stated "This will be achieved by challenging aspirations, embedding enterprise awareness into mainstream education and mentoring future entrepreneurs”. In addition, Mark Prisk, Business and Enterprise Minister (BIS), explained ‘We want to grow the next generation of entrepreneurs by ensuring that young people get hands-on experiences of enterprise at College and University’.
This second National one-day conference will explore where Post-16 student enterprise and entrepreneurialism is encouraged, supported and championed. The conference is intended to illuminate contemporary best practice in order to inform, enhance and promote the development of enterprise and entrepreneurship education amongst education providers in the UK, and will look at:-
The conference will be chaired by David Frost CBE, Executive Chairman at the National Centre for Entrepreneurship in Education (NCGE) and Chairman of Local Enterprise Partnership - National Network.
Delegates will meet leading organisations which promote and support enterprise/entrepreneurial development in the UK and attend workshops to explore the use of technologies and social media in teaching, learning and business start-up in enterprise and entrepreneurship education. There will be an opportunity to ask questions of key stakeholders operating in the enterprise/entrepreneurial education space throughout the day and in the panel session.
The panel session which will close the conference will bring together key contributors to provide a series of very short presentations showcasing their key contributions made to Enterprise/Entrepreneurial Education and the support they offer to their respective educator communities.
