About these resources

Enterprise can be about setting up and running your own business, but it also applies to people in paid employment, or voluntary and community settings. It's about individuals using initiative, spotting or creating opportunities and developing ideas into reality.

These new teaching and learning resources for Enterprise focus on the skills, attitudes and behaviours that demonstrate Enterprise, including communication skills such as identifying enterprising opportunities and evaluating the benefits and risks.

The resources have been created with teachers and, crucially, with their learners. They worked collaboratively in national trials and pilots. They identified new ways of planning and managing learning, taking account of learners' experiences, interests and the wide range of environments in which learning can take place. Learners were encouraged to 'take the driving seat', to think about how they learn most effectively and to take more control of their learning plans. A wide range of employers have also been involved in the development of the resources to ensure that they foster the skills and attitudes people need to succeed in employment.
