Changing patterns of employment within the UK and elsewhere have led to a need for geography, earth and environmental science (GEES) graduates to be prepared for a ‘portfolio’ career. It is advantageous for GEES graduates to be able to identify and capitalize on entrepreneurial opportunities. This paper illustrates how one department has addressed this issue through the introduction of a module in ‘enterprise and employability’. The article outlines the pedagogic principles underpinning the module's design and implementation, and the impact it has had on the students' experience.
