He chairs the UK's Quality Assurance Agency's Graduate Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Group. Educating the educators for enterprise has been a key goal of Andy’s and he has been contributing to the development of international innovative practices in entrepreneurship education, including what is believed to be the UK's first fully university-accredited M-level module in Initial Teacher Training for enterprise educators, and a new doctorate level study that helps learners to evaluate their progress using EntreComp.

Andy believes that before and when enterprises are born they need innovation, and before innovation can happen, creative thought is essential.
