Teaching Entrepreneurship in Schools: Experiential approach

Rating: 5/516 users

SUMMARY
Project based learning structure of the course allows participants to practice product development and business modelling in order to experience how to teach basic entrepreneurship concepts. The course follows experiential learning including case studies, field work, thinking tools, interactive games and moderated discussions. The participants will also receive a workbook with session’s summaries and descriptions of activities used along with teaching guidelines. We will recommend an interesting literature for further study. Key learning concepts include managing expectations of pupils about the entrepreneurship course, 5 € challenge, lean start-up, design thinking, prototyping, business modelling and planning.

OBJECTIVES
The main objective of the course is to prepare the participants to professionally lead an entrepreneurship course in a high or vocational school. By the end of the course participants will have a substantial understanding of tools for facilitating entrepreneurial skills among their students. They will get teaching guidelines for teaching core entrepreneurial competencies, including business modelling, design thinking and business planning. The specificities of different forms of entrepreneurship will be emphasised (i.e. social, women, technology, local and eco entrepreneurship).

It was the first Erasmus + experience. A very interesting course with great applicability in class. An outstanding trainer, Tine Nagy, who handled the material presented in the workspace very well. Congratulations! very interesting and very well organized. I recommend everyone who wants to learn something new! Elena Zemeili The course was sustained as planned. The trainer, Tine Nagy, presented the concepts of entrepreneurship in a modern, exciting and motivating manner. Many thanks for this opportunity to find out and learn new things in a beautiful country. We warmly recommend this course and the trainer Tine Nagy. Zafiu Doinita The whole atmosphere was friendly, at the end of the course we felt a multinational team. All indoor activities have been put into practice, we have built a business plan that can be successfully applied in the economic environment. Istrate Catalin Brina Menart- A very good organizer, the course was very interesting and well implemented, using modern technical appliances. The atmosphere within the group was a cooperative one.

In reality I attended the course in Berlin (July 2017) insted of Slovenia. The course was very interesting, practical, applicable in the classroom the contents learnt. The teacher, Marko, did very well his work. The only problem was the location, but I think the company is looking for a more central location. I recommand this cours particularly for teachers who have to teach entrepreneurship to students aged 15 or older.

Hi, I took part in the course prepared by Primera and I must say it was a wonderful experience. The course itself was very well structured and useful. Too short maybe - I could have stayed in Slovenia for a year! The organisation of everything was excellent, and so was the atmosphere. I highly recommend the course!

Highly recommended course. It is very informative and conducted in the format of learning by doing which makes it even more interesting. Besides the basics of teaching entrepreneurship this course provided me with special tools that focused on active participation of students.

Excellent course and brilliant teachers, I learned a lot. I am positive it helps me to make my sessions more practical and to get more motivation from my students. And it also helps the general organisation of my time, making the most of my timetable. Now I deal better with information and coordination tasks with the student's parents and my colleagues. Finally, the Primera Group team made us easy to enjoy the whole week in Ljubljana and it was hard to leave them. I have made three Erasmus+ courses abroad and I can say without a doubt this is the most practical, useful, challenging and engaging of them, as well as the best organised one.
