This book is the first to explore the relationship between enterprise and citizenship education. It considers the renewed focus on values and democracy in education and the widening of the enterprise agenda in theoretical and practical terms. What is the relationship between enterprise education and 'third way' politics and communitarianism? How can conceptualisations of enterprise education be made to engage pupils? The book combines theoretical discussion with compelling research evidence from a Scottish-based study. Case studies of teachers' practice and the pupils' perceptions illustrate how enterprise education can lend itself to the expression of citizenship and democracy in schools. The findings indicate useful principles which can be applied to the UK and beyond. The book will be essential reading for academics promoting and developing enterprise education and education for citizenship programmes for initial teacher education. It will interest teachers, student teachers and curriculum developers.
