About the Course
The Entrepreneurship in Education course, an interactive and practical ERASMUS+ teacher training program, is designed for educators seeking to empower students with entrepreneurial skills. This hands-on course aims to equip teachers with innovative teaching methods and workshop techniques to effectively teach entrepreneurship in the classroom.
Entrepreneurship in education goes beyond the traditional notion of starting a business; it encompasses cultivating a mindset that encourages creativity, critical thinking, and resilience.

The initiative, leadership, and problem-solving skills fostered in entrepreneurship education empower students to approach problems with innovative solutions, preparing them for future success in diverse fields.
By participating in the Entrepreneurship in Education course, educators will not only understand the theoretical foundations of entrepreneurship in education but also gain practical insights and tools to implement these concepts in their classrooms.
