National direction and integration: FE and HE entrepreneurial pathway
There is no clear direction as to how schools and FE and HE institutions can work together to embed enterprise and entrepreneurship education in a seamless pathway of opportunity. 61% of voting respondents felt a need for such clarity (Question 7). Until such direction is offered, there may be significant duplication of effort and approaches, with the learners becoming the losers within an inefficient education system. IEEC2010 also asked for opinions on whether or not the impact is clearly understood within society (voting stick question 4). Whilst the result shows an improved level of clarity from participants polled at IEEC2007, the split result is far from clear and suggests a general lack of understanding of direction and outcomes.
