Teaching and Learning Entrepreneurship for Micro and Small Businesses in the Cultural Industries Sector
Raffo, Carlo, Lovatt, Andy, Banks, Mark, & O'Connor, Justin (2000) Teaching and Learning Entrepreneurship for Micro and Small Businesses in the Cultural Industries Sector. Education & Training, 42(6), pp. 356-365.
Reports on an ESRC-funded, in-depth qualitative research project into 50 micro and small enterprises (MSEs) in the cultural industries. Our evidence sheds light on the extent to which the teaching and learning strategies adopted by higher education, further education and other VET providers are effective in providing entrepreneurship education and training for this innovative, high skill sector. Our findings suggest that entrepreneurs in this sector learn best by being able to experiment with ideas, by “doing” and networking with others and by working with more experienced mentors in their sector. The article concludes by suggesting a more “naturalistic” approach to teaching and learning entrepreneurship for micro and small businesses in the cultural industries sector.
