A paper describing the 'Rotherham Ready' model of entrepreneurship education and the journey taken in Rotherham to becoming 'The Most Enterprising Place in Britain' in 2010.
Purpose and process
The review is intended to demonstrate what is possible when a strategic approach is taken to developing enterprise. It includes case studies from all stages of education, and is an inspiring and informative account of how enterprise was developed across a whole town (Rotherham became 'The Most Enterprising Place in Britain' for this approach in 2010).
To stimulate discussion and thinking about:
- The wide potential of enterprise - how it can be used to transform a whole community within and beyond a school
- How it can be used to build and sustain partnership and collaborative working when strategically used in the style of the 'Rotherham Ready' model.
Curricular or thematic relevance
The case studies show how teachers at all key stages have integrated enterprising and entrepreneurial learning into their practice and provision.
How to organise:
Examples cover both curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The review contains many examples of enterprising approaches by local community members and the benefits gained as a result.
The review shows that working with teachers to develop enterprising/entrepreneurial learning and culture in education is a high impact and sustainable approach.

This seems to be a very interesting project. I've never heard of it before. I have visited the programme website and it offers many sources and information. Posted links of websites/specific projects would be useful.
