Building an entrepreneurial culture is key to the success of the region’s economy. Young people will become the workforce and entrepreneurs of the future. The enterprise education agenda is extremely complex and greater emphasis is being placed on it by Government and the Regional Development Agency every year. Many colleges across the region are already incredibly ‘enterprising’, but if we are to bring about long term cultural change, more needs to be done to equip teachers and lecturers to embed enterprise in every aspect of college life.

Through this project, our aim is to build on best practice developed through initiatives such as the Northern Way, encourage greater sharing of ideas and approaches through an FE enterprise network and promote partnership working across other education sectors.

Youth Enterprise Services (YES) was contracted by Yorkshire Forward to manage enterprise education within the ‘Embedding Enterprise in Yorkshire & Humber’ programme. In line with both national and regional strategy the programme promoted progression in the development and implementation of enterprise skills from primary through to Higher Education. This programme of work specifically focused on Further Education.
