What do you think of the following definitions of employability and enterprise?


EMPLOYABILITY is having the skills and abilities to practice professionally. 
Life skills which include: emotional intelligence, self-efficacy; confidence, team-working, communication; being enterprising – a way of doing that enables students to act in the world.
[Ball 2008]

ENTERPRISE involves the additional assets of being able to spot and act on opportunities,
being resourceful, proactive, having a vision; project management, networking and financial acumen.
[Ball 2008]


To what extent does the definition relate to e&e in the curricula or description of how things are?
