It's a question many people ask. We hope that this section will provide you with some answers to this. There is a wide range of definitions on what enterprise is and what it means to be enterprising. The points below give a snapshot of the ways that enterprise can be defined.
Anyone can develop these enterprising skills. Young people do so by working alongside employers; going on work experience; taking part in enterprise activities at school; working towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award; participating in a school sports team; getting a part time job; organising an event or trip.
Developing entrepreneurial attitudes and skills isn't just useful when starting a new business, but can help when finding a job, gaining promotion or contributing to your organisation.
