On 16th June 2010 a celebration event took place at Weetwood Hall Leeds, to showcase and highlight examples of FE enterprise education.

The event was well attended by almost 20 colleges in the region, in total there were over 30 different organisations present.

Key themes of embedding enterprise across a range of curriculum, enrichment and extra curricular areas were presented by colleges including, FE Business Incubation (Leeds City College), An Entrepreneur’s Perspective (Rotherham College of Arts & Tech), Enterprise Activities in a LEGI Funded Environment (Doncaster College), and being Enterprising through Volunteering Programmes – V-inspired (East Riding College).

A number students also came along to help facilitate their college presentations, three students from Calderdale College represented fantastically on a number of key enterprise projects they had been involved with – this was also followed by a questions and answer session with the audience which they handled very well. The students involvement is a great representation of how being an enterprising college, engages and enthuses staff and students alike.

Feedback from the event was very positive, comments include:

“Excellent and Inspiring”

“Very interesting day – good to see so much enthusiasm for the subject”

“Well attended, clear participation from the wider network”

“Comparing other college models and establishing links was of particular relevance”

“Much better than other enterprise events I have been to and great for networking”

To follow up from the event, which represented partnership working and sharing of best practice at literally, its best….. A number of key regional working partnerships and relationships have been developed. This will harness existing work done in the region, both with schools, HE institutions and those involved in enterprise education including Business Link, The National Enterprise Academy and Enterprise UK.
