ICEE Articles on Entrepreneurship Education
The Innovation Cluster for Entrepreneurship Education (ICEE)
The Innovation Cluster for Entrepreneurship Education (ICEE) is an international research project aiming to analyse the impact of entrepreneurship education and understand what is needed to reach the European goal, which is that every young person should have a practical entrepreneurial experience before leaving compulsory education.
The consortium is testing what the scenario looks like at 50% penetration among students between 15 and 20 years old and carrying out 27-month field trial using mini-companies in twenty schools (academic as well as vocational) across the five countries. The field trials, based on qualitative and quantitative methods, are focusing on learning outcomes, drivers and hindrances, and effects of entrepreneurship education on the community by collecting information from students, teachers, headmasters, parents and volunteers (test groups and control groups).
Through four innovation clusters, the consortium is analysing the existing national strategies and formulating with suggestions for how entrepreneurial learning can flow from primary to upper secondary in a ‘progression model’. The interim results of those innovation clusters are presented in three articles that have been recently released. Covering important topics related to teacher training, content and tools and assessment, they provide an overview of the ICEE approach to entrepreneurship education and its first outcomes:
- Fostering Entrepreneurial Mind-sets - The Key Role Teachers Play
- Teachers need better tools and methods to help fight youth unemployment
- Is entrepreneurship education working? Why Evaluation and Assessment are Key Moving Forward
