Despite extensive investment in enterprise education by many governments around the world, the evidence base is somewhat patchy, with only a few scientifically grounded studies of its effects.
This evaluation is an important step in understanding the range of activities provided by enterprise funding and their effectiveness, especially in terms of the valued added by these funds. Here, the results from the research present a national picture of provision including use of funds and support for pupils as well as potential longer-term benefits for the economy.
The overall aim of the study is to review and evaluate the effect of enterprise education in secondary schools in England, including the most useful support and tools for ensuring effective teaching and learning.
