In order to develop young people's sense of initiative and an entrepreneurial mind-set, it is necessary to address entrepreneurial learning from an early age and throughout the school system.

The entrepreneurship key competence refers to an individual’s ability to turn ideas into action. It includes creativity, innovation and risk taking, as well as the ability to plan and manage projects in order to achieve objectives.

Schools need to plan how to implement entrepreneurial learning at all age levels.

In this part of the Virtual Guide, we have collected good practices from several countries. These good practices may help you to plan how to implement and to improve entrepreneurial learning in your school. Remember that in primary education, the cross-curricular approach is important and entrepreneurship is normally not taught as a separate subject; while in upper secondary education, the integrated approach increases, and we can find integration in both compulsory and optional subjects.
