This article explores the direct influence of school-based enterprise education on career choices and particularly, how this might be limited as entrepreneurial intentions dissipate over time. We propose that it is the indirect influence of school-based
enterprise education, through encouraging voluntary engagement with other forms of enterprise education, which is important. Drawing upon data from the United
Kingdom (UK) Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) study this paper utilises a binary logistic regression approach and finds evidence to support the proposed indirect role. This shows the importance of collaboration between those delivering and designing enterprise education at all stages to ensure that young people are prepared correctly to move seamlessly between such stages.
