The attention of trainers is drawn to the implications of some ofthe findings of a survey into perceptions of enterprise among highereducation students which are likely to be of importance in thedevelopment of suitable learning strategies in the workplace. It showsthat students do not universally embrace the concept of enterprise andthat many students with industrial experience have found that employersdo not value students with enterprising abilities. Differences inattitudes between groups which are likely to affect the success oftraining are highlighted. Focus areas for training for enterprise aresuggested and a starting point for such a programme is recommended.
