Background & Main Outcomes

Following the EE-HUB Good Practice “Teachpreneur”, the speakers showed more examples on how to set up training programmes for teachers, not only in business studies, but also other vocational studies. Learning and stimulating entrepreneurial behaviour in the earliest stage is important and has to be recognised by the teachers. This is only possible when teachers are entrepreneurial themselves. Based on the presentations, the participants discussed: 

• How to improve the entrepreneurial skills by teachers and what can be done to train entrepreneurial behaviour and sensitivity?

• How to get entrepreneurial experience by having short time work placements in companies for teachers to learn about basic skills for entrepreneurship?
