Dr Colin Jones, Senior Lecturer in Entrepreneurship, will be presenting "The Promise of Enterprise Education; Going One Step Beyond Ruskin.

The role of enterprise (or entrepreneurship) education is increasingly debated within education systems globally. This seminar will provide participants with a contemporary explanation of the place of enterprise education below, in and above higher education. The unique nature of the field, the various different contributions it can make, and the challenges it faces will all be addressed in this seminar. This seminar is targeted at educators in the K to 12 sector, colleges, higher and vocational education, and even those providing informal education. The key question to be addressed will be: what do our students need to know and be capable of doing in order to succeed in the 21st century?
