Vision or plan for entrepreneurship education

Since 2006-2007, we have been cooperating with Junior Achievement: The program “Economics for Success”, involving 87 students of the 9th grade.

Up to now, the program has expanded at this school involving now around 640 students across different year groups.

Resources to encourage and support entrepreneurship education

Specific time for this project is allocated on the slot for “Education to citizenship” – 45 min x 6

Focus on student centred learning, integration in different subjects

The methodology used always has the student in the center of the program development. We've adopted more JAP projects over the years, for example, “The Family”, “The Community”, “It's my Business”.
