Schools and Good Practices search

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.

These actions are taken in the form of compulsory classes (fourth educational stage), extracurricular activities, student and teacher undertakings and projects, as well as the realisation of national programmes.

Queen Jadwiga Middle School Complex no. 10; Definition of Entrepreneurial Learning

Entrepreneurial learning is considered in our school as a way of providing knowledge in the field of management of various resources - such as one's own potential, time and financial means management, as well as a way of shaping abilities:

  • making choices on the basis of established criteria;
  • decision-making; solving problematic situations; communicating;
  • team work.

Entrepreneurial learning constitutes a preparation for the fulfilment of future roles, including citizen, worker and consumer. It is about shaping the attitudes of a creative person who is engaged in their own development and the development of the location in which they live, work and learn.
