15 pages. Reflective Portfolio

This should be an individual piece that considers the entire experience and the impact upon you the student and your attitude as an entrepreneurial person. This element should consider relevant academic theory where applicable.
The portfolio should map all your activities undertaken against the enterprise and entrepreneurship education checklist. This is based on the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education guidance (2012) and provides a simple way for you to track your progress in meeting the goals required for your reflective portfolio.
