What is Enterprise Learning?

A rationale for enterprise learning

All young people require opportunities to develop enterprising capabilities that enable them to successfully and confidently manage their life, learning and work into the future. In a world that is increasingly characterised by complexity and change, the need for young people to be enterprising to both cope and thrive has never been greater.

Enterprising young people are typically optimistic about their future and have raised aspirations for further education and training, employment and self-employment.

Developing an enterprising culture is vital to Australia’s social and economic prosperity. Through the provision of enterprise learning, Australian education systems have a fundamental role to play in the development of such a culture.
