The aim of the project was to gather data from educators which could be used to underpin the design and development of tools to support the assessment of the impact(s) of enterprising and entrepreneurial curricula.

The project comprised a desk research stage focusing on global best practice of impact measurement tools followed by a study targeting enterprise educators which aimed to develop an understanding of individuals’ definitions, practices, goals and measurements.

The research team hopes that the outputs of this work will help educators to understand how key terms such as ‘enterprise education’, ‘entrepreneurship education’ and ‘entrepreneurial education’ are defined and applied in practice and, how these are currently being assessed and measured to explore impacts on students.
