Enterprise and Entrepreneur Development has never been more important. Growing youth populations, coupled with rising youth unemployment, is putting greater emphasis on job creation and enterprising behavior within employment. Technological developments are reshaping our workplaces and changing how businesses are operated, while the global nature of business means more young people will have jobs crossing different continents and sectors. It is therefore important we equip future generations with the skills and mindsets they need to navigate a world of work we can’t yet envisage.

The future employability of young people will depend heavily on how teaching and learning react to these changing needs. Learners will need to be innovative, adaptive, resilient and flexible to navigate an ever-evolving labour market.

In recent years there has been significant growth in enterprise education in our country as a result of shifts in the national education policy. Embedding entrepreneur development and education in technical and vocational education and training can be an important vehicle for ensuring learners are prepared for life beyond their educational institutions.

Enterprising mindsets coupled with the skills gained through Entrepreneurship Education could be the perfect recipe to support the future employability of learners. Entrepreneurship education will make young people more employable and more ‘intrapreneurial’ in their work within existing organisations, across the social, public and private sectors. Through entrepreneurship activities, learners can gain key entrepreneurial skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, risk-taking, and teamwork. Entrepreneurship can offer alternative pathways for young people, improving their skills, employability and life chances, while supporting wider economic and social development.

Effective entrepreneurship education relies on both teachers and the culture of teaching institutions. Teachers need a broad range of competencies to successfully embed entrepreneurial education within the curriculum, and this can be supported by a learning environment where risk is encouraged and where employment as an outcome of learning is a priority. Entrepreneurship teaching doesn’t provide answers, but supports learners to identify the right questions. It should look to push boundaries, encourage learners to think creatively and be confident enough in their own ability to take the risks necessary to succeed. Creative environments must also support failure. Mistakes can often prove to be the greatest lessons.

The future is dependent on the next generation, and high-quality teaching that incorporates
entrepreneurship will be an essential part of their success. The active minds of tomorrow are reliant on the guidance and support of the teachers of today, who will open the world of possibilities up to them.
