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.
