Abstract

This chapter examines the current position of Entrepreneurship Education (EE) in UK secondary schools and colleges, conducts a systematic review of UK policies, national curriculum and evaluates UK EE key successes, challenges and international collaboration in secondary education. The chapter reviews and critically assesses the available international literature on impacts of enterprise and EE initiatives aimed at secondary schools and colleges, and maps the landscape of the provision of enterprise and EE initiatives in schools (mainly in England but also in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). This chapter initially defines enterprise and EE and its expected outcomes and impacts in a logic model together with the indicators that would show they had been achieved. A wide literature search identified over 100 documents from which 30 were selected for detailed review.
