This chapter stresses the importance of teaching in establishing a sustainable learning mindset in preparing students for employment in an uncertain future. The building and nurturing of social, emotional and psychological aspects of self in students is crucial to sustainability and can be established through embedding innovation, creativity and enterprise into teaching for learning. It highlights how mindset changes in teacher educators, student teachers and teachers that support the enabling of innovation, creativity and enterprising behaviours in learning can encourage confident, resilient and imaginative students. The chapter draws on a case study, the Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise House project, to illustrate key concepts and review practical strategies to sustain this approach in learning through teaching.
