Through the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan and the Communication on Education Redesign, the European Commission has highlighted the need to integrate business education into all areas of education, including non-formal learning.
In order to support productivity and growth in Europe, it is vital to invest in education and training. Europe needs creative and innovative entrepreneurs; it also needs a flexible and resilient workforce equipped with the necessary and basic skills. The European Commission recognizes entrepreneurship education as a means of boosting the entrepreneurial spirit of young people.
In order to inspire their students and help them develop a business mindset, teachers need to have a wide range of creativity and entrepreneurship skills; they need a school environment where creativity and risk-taking are encouraged, and where mistakes are considered a learning opportunity.
Our education system is responsible for preparing young people to build successful lives. They should be ready for the wide range of possibilities ahead of them, including working for others, starting their own ventures, and contributing to their communities. All of these options require a depth of knowledge in their chosen discipline, as well as creative problem solving skills, leadership abilities, experience working on effective teams, and adaptability in an ever-changing environment.

Provider of the course is a highly professional organization that met the educational needs, moreover offered personal advice and help during our stay in Heraklion. Two teacher trainers who guided us through the course day after day were adequately qualified, professional, and efficient. The individual educational lectures were meaningful and effectively planned and implemented, reflecting on our own experiences. I became acquainted with new methods of entrepreneurial education focused on soft skills. This project was very inspiring and enriching, especially in improving entrepreneurial knowledge and skills. One of the greatest benefits was the opportunity to exchange experience in various topics regarding education with teachers from different countries.
