New report on 'Teacher Education for Entrepreneurship: Towards a Development Agenda'

Initiated by the European Commission, the European Training Foundation and the international research and consultancy agency ECORYS recently published a new report on 'Teacher Education for Entrepreneurship: Towards a Development Agenda'. The report provides a summary and evaluation of a pilot action on training teachers for entrepreneurship education funded by the EU Commission, DG Enterprise and DG Education and Culture.

The report is a synthesis and further examination of insights gathered through a number international Symposia. It describes the current state of play in teacher education for entrepreneurship in Europe and highlights four areas for future action. These include: initial teacher education; continuing professional development; national and regional level support systems for entrepreneurial teachers; and the local level support required at school level.

It concludes by setting out the ‘Budapest Agenda’ for action by all stakeholders and by making specific recommendations for the European Commission.
