Training for Enterprise

Journal of European Industrial Training

ISSN: 0309-0590

Article publication date: 1 March 1991



The attention of trainers is drawn to the implications of some of the findings of a survey into perceptions of enterprise among higher education students which are likely to be of importance in the development of suitable learning strategies in the workplace. It shows that students do not universally embrace the concept of enterprise and that many students with industrial experience have found that employers do not value students with enterprising abilities. Differences in attitudes between groups which are likely to affect the success of training are highlighted. Focus areas for training for enterprise are suggested and a starting point for such a programme is recommended.
