Network - Employability, Enterprise and Work-based Learning
Innovation, Knowledge Exchange, Enterprise, Skills and Employability agendas.
Our network events to date have focussed upon the employability dimension, especially work placement and work experience. This event shifts the focus to enterprise, how it may contribute to student employability and its connections and interfaces with the overlapping concepts of knowledge exchange and innovation. It will explore existing policy, practice and achievement in these overlapping domains and how these might develop in the coming period. It will challenge existing notions of 'innovation' with broader approaches that dissolve the boundaries between existing agendas ('skills', 'enterprise', 'innovation', 'employability') and focus on workplace-based change. How HE contributes at present, and, how it might contribute to a reconceptualisation of the field, will be to the fore throughout. Positioned 2 weeks after the UK General Election on 7 May, we expect a lively debate.
