 High Level Symposium on “Entrepreneurship Education: Teacher Education as critical success factor”, Budapest 7-8 April 2011

Offering specific training to teachers is crucial in order to make entrepreneurship education generally available and effective: a High Level Symposium was organized on 7-8 April in Budapest to tackle that issue. The aim of the Symposium was to bring together practitioners and policy makers from across Europe to determine how to develop effective teacher education systems for entrepreneurship. At the heart of the event was the question of how best to equip teachers with the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to foster the entrepreneurial mindsets of young people.

Around 90 participants from EU institutions and from 28 countries attended the Symposium, including representatives from the Budapest viewnational Ministries for Enterprise and Education, from universities and teacher colleges, from business associations, together with teachers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders.

A set of five “Grand Challenges” were examined during the Symposium:

  • How to help primary and secondary teachers to become agents of change through initial teacher education
  • Encouraging and enabling in-service teachers to engage in entrepreneurship education through continuing professional development (CPD)
  • How to develop teachers as coaches/facilitators of learning
  • How to develop support systems for teachers
  • How to develop the role of the school and its community (their partners) to help teachers to provide learning opportunities in entrepreneurship.
