Mapping of teachers' preparation for entrepreneurship education

The European Commission has specifically linked the development of entrepreneurial attitudes and behaviours to education and training. The development of a sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is one of the eight key competences recognised at EU level in the Key Competences Reference Framework.
This study is an attempt to get a first impression on the level and type of activities taken at practitioner level to include entrepreneurship in teacher education. It is a pilot study that might serve as a basis for the design of further research, but is by no means complete or exhaustive.

Prior to the start of the research, it had been agreed that a selection of ten countries would be mapped. Austria, Finland, Norway, Sweden, UK (Scotland), Netherlands, Portugal, Hungary, Belgium (Flanders region) and Croatia have been selected for this mapping exercise, based on several criteria.
