Enterprise Challenges in Psychology and Beyond: Developing graduate skills and employability through entrepreneurial learning

Workshop for HEA Annual Conference 5th July 2017

Abstract: Developing enterprise skills and entrepreneurial learning within degree programmes is a propitious way of enhancing employability and preparing students for the workplace and their chosen career. We have developed a set of “enterprise challenges” and embedded them at different stages in the psychology degree. These challenges ask students to use their subject –specific knowledge and skills to develop and then pitch an idea to support specific client groups. In the first part of the workshop we will present different models of delivering enterprise challenges within a psychology degree programme; in the second part we will set participants the challenge to design their own scenario within their discipline.
