The National Policy Statement on Entrepreneurship sets out Government's ambitions for Ireland to be among the most entrepreneurial nations in the world, which includes propsals for the expansion of entrepreneurship education at higher level.
The Statement details some of the immediate key actions that Government will take to enhance and strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem and ultimately create jobs.
Essentially, the objectives are centred around three distinct aims:
The Statement highlights the role of HEIs in delivering entrepreneurship education as well as the role that enterprise needs to play in helping HEIs provide an environment supportive of entrepreneurship. It also sets out indicators to be used to monitor progress, including numbers in entrepreneurship modules across HEIs.
The Statement highlights the role of initiatives like CEEN in delivering entrepreneurship education, making specific reference to the CEEN Level 9 Educators Programme for Irish HEIs.
An Enterprise and Entrepreneurial Learning Module has been adopted by 17 different higher education institutions….CEEN is available to all HEIs interested in developing entrepreneurship education. The evolution of the programme will be vital in developing future entrepreneurship education in Ireland.
