Course description

In this self-paced online course, you will learn about the basic characteristics and importance of entrepreneurship competence.

Although the name comes from business and economics, entrepreneurship is an inevitable part of the 21st-century curriculum and is based on a set of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that lead to creative processes, with a significant cultural, social and financial value.

In the course, we will explain the core terminology and provide theoretical background, but the main focus will be on practical ideas and hands-on experience.

This course is intended for all teachers (from beginners to those with more experience) who teach different subjects at both primary- and secondary-school levels. You will learn about the concept of financial literacy and how to strengthen the entrepreneurship competence of your students through project-based learning.

Entrepreneurship goes beyond – we will also learn how to set up projects and activities that incorporate more subjects and teachers at school, which can be implemented in the local community.

Let’s enter the world of entrepreneurship and discover its advantages from the abacus to the business plan.
