[Beijing] Masterclass Series: Changing the World Through Enterprise Education



A Full-day Training on Enterprise Education | 创新行动力教育培训工坊
What are the qualities that lead to a successful and content life?
How can schools develop these skills in all of their students?
How can universities better prepare students for the future?
The British Chamber of Commerce and the China-Britain Business Council will work with Venture Education to present our members with a unique full-day training on enterprise education.
As the world changes, education is undergoing some of the most dramatic shifts since the current system was developed in the 19th century. At the forefront of academic and government education innovation in the UK and China is “enterprise education”. Enterprise education is a response to the challenges facing modern students in all levels of education and society that creates students whose positivity allows them to thrive in any situation at school, university and throughout their entire life.
The training will be conducted in English.
Who should attend? 
The training is suitable for all educators from kindergarten to postgraduate, education managers, local, national and international policymakers, academics, education researchers or any other individuals or institutions interested in the current trends and future changes in global education.
How will participants benefit?
Participants will leave the event inspired; able to talk knowledgeably and passionately about a topic that will dominate education in the future. Participants will also learn how enterprise education can be practically applied in all classrooms, and how schools and universities can make themselves more enterprising.
Led by enterprise educators, the training will be filled with activities, games and challenges, so participants will not only become better informed but also experience an enterprising classroom.
All participants will also receive a certificate upon completion of the programme.

What previous attendees say

“It doesn’t matter if you work as a leader of a team, customer service, or HR, the workshop by Venture Education made us all understand the importance of enterprise through various fun and dynamic activities.”

Weiwei Lu, HR Director, Beijing Dentsu  
“Julian and his team have done a training about Enterprise Education for us, which was a very wonderful lesson enjoyed by educators from several schools in Dongcheng District.  Through two hours’ various and interesting activities, I think the teachers all understand the important abilities the students should be equipped with when they enter the society.”
Education manager  
“This made me realise that I rarely work with other teachers in my school and that we also need to learn to collaborate if we expect students to be able to do it.”
– Teacher from a middle school.
