The Scottish Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Educators' (SEE) programme has been designed to meet a clearly identified need arising from an increased global demand in the field of entrepreneurship education. The European Union (2006) describes entrepreneurship as a 'key competence for all, helping young people to be creative and confident in whatever they undertake'. Within Scotland, Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) supports young people in developing skills which they will use throughout their life and in their work, including the development of enterprise and employability skills. The Scotland CAN DO Action Framework (2014) outlines the importance placed on entrepreneurship and innovation for increasing sustainable growth.
Who is the SEE programme for?
The programme is specifically for educators and those seeking to develop enterprise outcomes for learners. You may work in higher, further education or training with particular groups.
What can it do for me?
Recent independent evaluation reported that participation in the SEE programme can lead to noticeable change in an educator's mindset, confidence and skills to build entrepreneurial outcomes in others and, in particular, the programme:
- Contributes by further embedding the entrepreneurship culture within teaching
- Provides educators with the skills, understanding and confidence to enable change within their individual teaching and to share their skills/good practice with colleagues
- Creates evidenced change (eg mindset/culture, course/module content, teaching methods, CDP training methods).
How will my institution benefit?
SEE will help you play a more strategic and practical role in enabling your higher education institution or college to unlock the potential of its staff and students, harness potential opportunities with business and other external stakeholders.
