Background & Main outcomes 

Teaching entrepreneurship is a modern and different way of teaching; it is about guiding students and not just giving answers. Teachers need support to make this change and that includes training, support from the school management, recognition, collaboration between teachers and with the community, etc. By highlighting good practices, this webinar focused on key aspects teachers need support in to become more entrepreneurial in their teaching. The participants of the webinar therefore acquired:

• A greater awareness of the EE-HUB initiative;

• Knowledge about innovative tools to support teachers delivering entrepreneurship education

• An understanding of the whole-school approach and the role of teachers in this context; 

• An understanding of the outcomes of working with the business community;

• Greater responsiveness to the need of investing in teachers to uptake EE in schools across Europe
