Building an Enterprising Curriculum


Enterprise has a strong connection to employability, innovation, commercialisation, knowledge transfer and business start-up, however there is a distinction between the generic use of the term ‘enterprise’ in reference to business venture creation and a sense of practical action.

Enterprise can include ideas development, taking the initiative, critical thinking, identifying opportunities, innovation, problem solving, making things happen, networking, communication, strategic thinking and decision making.

Directed by subject based knowledge Cardiff University Enterprise can support the building of students’ enterprise capability within teaching. Staff are able to work with individual academics/directors of teaching/ Heads of Schools to support or advise on pedagogic interventions or enterprising programme content, while on a case by case basis staff members may be able to help map existing content.


If you would like to discuss how enterprise, employability, innovation, creativity or a theme of ‘making a difference’ could be woven into your teaching, please contact:
