Entrepreneurship education: a guide for educators
A course by Luiza Czajkowska, Flery Rusaki
This chapter starts with the baseline goal of improving entrepreneurship education and training as set out by the European Commission. It highlights the challenges that are faced in fostering an entrepreneurial attitude in educational institutions and, in particular the need to support teachers through training programs that pursue a long-term policy commitment that is both creative and well-conceived. Entrepreneurship education is still an up-and-coming subject in teacher education. Nevertheless, experience and good practice indicate that when this type of training is offered the concept and the innovative methods associated with entrepreneurship are quickly adapted to the educational necessities of students.
