Entrepreneuring - A Way Forward (ESF 2009 -2012)
"There are a lot of people who go forward with
full speed, and who have enthusiastic attitude for life. It´s a pity
that they are mainly under 7 years old”
- Esa Saarinen, a Finnish philosopherIn
Entrepreneuring - a Way Forward project we believe that enterprise
education can give a great contribution in gaining back this enthusiasm.
The key components of enterprise education are an active individual
with initiative, an entrepreneurial learning environment, education and
training, and active and enterprise-promoting policy in society.
The focus in Entrepreneuring - a Way
Forward -project is to create a model of enterprise education in
which teachers, entrepreneurs , education authorities in municipalities
and associations of entrepreneurs have a clear role. The foundations
for this model are action plans that are created for municipalities.
Enterprise Education Passport is created to support the model.
The goal of the local action programmes is to make enterprise education
an attainable method for every teacher and to make it sure that it is
not only a matter for some active ones.
Local action programmes of enterprise education include:
- Description of the methods and goals of enterprise education for every level of education
- Models for bringing entrepreneurs to work alongside teachers
- Creating new models for local needs
