As a veteran of Adult and Community Based Learning I became aware of the concept of enterprise in FE a few years ago. Because we teach Enterprise we can be enterprising.
However my experience suggests that this is not the case. So few members of the academic world are the natural risk takers we need in the enterprise economies it creates a real time challenge for the whole sector.
I will give a specific example - managing change is a simple subject area because you can apply specific management principles but creating change or offering dynamic solutions is a foriegn language in the FE world, few tutors have the skills set to support the learning and risk taking.
How can we tackle this gap in faculty knowledge? I would be interested in your reply.
