Welcome to the to the search area for schools and good practices!

Below you will find selected examples from several countries in Europe. More will come as we build the Virtual Guide.

You can either search by country or by 8 different selected areas (Good Practices) or by both. The examples are meant to be of help in your own practice and when implementing entrepreneurship education in your school. You can probably not use them exactly as they are in the examples, but they may be a good start and a source of inspiration.

In the column to the right on this page, you will see some Case Study Schools which are good practitioners of entrepreneurial learning.

  1. Work schedule of the School - to support the development of the student, fulfilling their educational needs and realising educational projects.
  2. Pedagogical Programme of the Brusy Middle School - 'The student makes the right choices in life, conscious of the fact that their future depends on the level of their concentration on the matters that we are able to control, e.g. attitude, education and work; with regard to their abilities and opportunities in the future, they must strive after autonomy and the capacity to handle difficult situations, search for solutions on their own, and be capable of team work'.
  3. Pedagogical innovation - the 'Entrepreneurial school' is concentrated on issues related to the economy; the goal of this innovation is to provide the student with knowledge and effective interpersonal communication capacity, as well as team work and self-presentation skills. The student learns: about the rules of how the local labour market functions; to assess their own possibilities and indispensable conditions of undertaking a job; to rationally manage their finances; to gain basic knowledge about economic laws and terminology; to undertake entrepreneurial activities in his/her surroundings.

Mo and Jolster Upper Secondary School; entrepreneurial learning in school plans

The School Development Plan includes the following references to Entrepreneurial Learning:

  1. For our school, the most important activity in entreprenurial learning is the forming of a youth enterprise in 'The Company Programme'.
  2. Our development plans for the students show that many entrepreneurial learning activities and goals are already in place; for example, in vocational training the students are already expected to learn about how tasks are performed in the workplace, both as it is now and how it may be in the future.
  3. Students must learn about how to talk to clients, how to be ethically sound in one's practice in the workplace and how to offer excellent customer service; they must understand basic economics, and also the effect their work can have upon their colleagues and bosses.
  4. In short, the plan is for students to learn about more than just a part of a job. Here is entreprenurship's true value: that students can gain understanding and experience of work long before they actually enter a workplcae of their choosing. In a youth enterprise, students can work as in a normal workplace and do the things they are supposed to learn - instead of just reading about them.
