In this paper we (a business advisor from a university Enterprise Team and a senior lecturer in primary education from a School of Education and Professional Development), explore the experience of developing an intervention to introduce enterprise education to trainees undertaking a Reflective Practice module within a primary teacher training degree. Rather than ‘recruit’ trainees into enterprise education on an unproblematic platform of preparing young people for a fast changing and uncertain world (Young, 2014; The Careers and Enterprise Company, 2019), we wanted to create space for these student teachers to question familiar activities and compare different approaches to enterprise education. The experience of developing this intervention generated a critical dialogue and reflection (between us), qualities said to be crucial to secure the legitimacy of enterprise education (Fayolle, 2013; Fayolle, Verzat & Wapshott, 2016). Our purpose in this paper is to offer insight into the lived experience of two practitioners grappling with their work, and themselves, as they try to create an enterprise education intervention that better sits with their values.
