Described as a landmark document by the British Government’s Chief Entrepreneurial Adviser, and used to inform international initiatives such as the European Commission’s EntreComp Framework, QAA’s 2012 ‘guidance on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship’ has been applied to shape and develop new educational initiatives worldwide. Five years on, we have seen its impact evidenced in new types of courses, new types of learning and new metrics
