Creating a culture of enterprise is an economic good and, increasingly, an economic imperative. Employment trends over the past two decades point to a continuing expansion of small businesses and self-employment, where enterprising skills and attitudes are most valuable. Larger businesses and the public sector also gain from employees who demonstrate entrepreneurial flair and contribute to the organisation’s dynamism. In this pamphlet key experts from government, education and business offer their perspectives on the direction that enterprise learning should take if it is to deliver the radical and widespread extension of opportunity, alongside robust, innovative and sustainable economic growth, that the Government is seeking to achieve. The pamphlet also features a series of case studies of existing enterprise education schemes which both offers examples of best practice and draws out lessons for the future from the outcomes of these initiatives.
