Initially the Enterprise Project was set up to develop an enabling culture that aims to embed enterprise in the curriculum, providing a 'real world of work' learning experience. A curriculum rich in creativity, experimentation and design, can be linked to positive employment outcomes for craft based students.

The opening of the Enterprise shop has enabled learning to take place across the College spectrum with IT, Managing money, Business studies and customer services incorporated in the day to day running of the Enterprise shop.
