Inspiring Entrepreneurship in Education Launch

Last Thursday saw the launch event of NCEE’s Inspiring Entrepreneurship in Education report at the House Of Lords, with APPG for Entrepreneurship and ACS International Schools.

Guests at the event got to hear from Ian Dunn,Chair of NCEE, Fergus Rose, Advancement Director at ACS International Schools and Professor Alison Wolf, Baroness of Dulwich.

The Inspiring Entrepreneurship in Education report reveals the state of enterprise and entrepreneurial education in the UK, drawing on a survey by NCEE and ACS International Schools of 62 Heads of Enterprise from UK universities.

The survey builds on previous biennial surveys ran by NCEE until 2012.

The report finds that progress is strong in some areas and weaker in others. Heads of Enterprise report that overall activity has increased, and there is widespread provision of enterprise and entrepreneurial support.

However, activities aimed at supporting staff and the provision of broader institutional policies have fallen over the past six years, and despite marginal improvements in other areas – such as support for female and ethnic minority students – there is room for improvement.
