An ESF project in Finland is giving teachers the skills to weave the topic of entrepreneurship into the curriculum

The University of Jyväskylä in Finland is developing a teaching model to include entrepreneurial education in teacher training studies. The project is part of the ‘Steady Path of Entrepreneurial Education’ programme and several Central Finnish educational organisations are participating with ESF support. The aim is to ‘mainstream’ elements of entrepreneurship in school education across the curriculum – which the project considers to be an effective way of getting the messages across.
