Welcome to the November 2019 Update

 

This month we launch the Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education Framework, highlight the national results of three of our student surveys and share a series of videos for supporting care leavers in higher education.

 

The Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education Framework was launched this month, developed in partnership with EEUK, IOEE, ISBE, SFEDI and the QAA. This is a resource to help institutions provide effective activities and experiences so that students can identify what is involved in being enterprising and entrepreneurial, helping them to navigate their future careers. Stuart Norton, Senior Adviser at Advance HE, introduces the new framework in his blog ‘The trouble with employability’. Andy Penaluna, Professor Emeritus at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, who has made a large contribution to the framework, discusses the topic of future proofing higher education in his blog ‘Enterprise thinking on the future of HE’. Further content exploring enterprise and entrepreneurship will continue to be published over the coming weeks and can be found on a new guidance page. Continue reading AdvanceHE Newsletter

The Royal Society Update

A manifesto for UK science

Science and innovation drive the economy, create jobs and enrich our society. Whether it is Brexit, climate change, healthcare or the economy, all of the major issues that voters care about are underpinned by science, research and innovation. If the UK is to rise to these challenges, it is vital that the next government steps up its commitment and equips UK Science with the tools and support it needs to unlock its full potential.

The Royal Society has published a manifesto outlining key steps the next government must take in order to harness the potential of science to power a cutting edge UK.

Can we achieve five extra years of healthy older age?

Healthy ageing is a two-day conference held by the Royal Society and the Academy of Medical Sciences’ FORUM bringing together experts from industry, academia, the NHS and the wider scientific community.

Speakers will discuss scientific advances across ageing research, the implications of our ageing population for society, and explore the ethical, social and economic frameworks that will be needed to ensure sustainable and fair benefit for all.
