Chapter 5: Best practices
The module aimed to explore how the European will, expressed 2006, to develop entrepreneurship education at all levels of education and training, from the youngest age, is translated.

The idea is to answer the question: “How to develop innovative entrepreneurial experiences at school?”

In the previous chapters, we have addressed this question in a theoretical way developing the different aspects of the creation of an enterprise project at school. We addressed in Chapter 2 how to prepare teachers to develop entrepreneurship at school, which entrepreneurial competences students should acquire, which projects to involve them in. In Chapter 3, we had a look at the steps of an entrepreneurial project and its impact on students. In Chapter 4, we explored how to fund the project, to find partners, create a network...

In this final chapter, we provide a concrete reply to the question, through a series of “best practices” experiences by actors of the world of education and training (creation of training programmes for teachers, services proposed by education authorities, universities or specialised associations, transnational projects to share with foreign colleagues, educational tools…).

These best practices are addressed to professionals who wish to have information and tools, as well as to the general audience.

They have been structured according to their development level:
  • Best practices at the national level (initiated within EU member states)
  • Best practices at the European level (initiated through European programmes)
  • Best practices at the international level (beyond Europe)
The following examples mainly come from two reference works:
  • “Entrepreneurship Education: A Guide for Educators”
  • “Entrepreneurship Education : A road to success”

The e-learning guide is very useful. Module 4, Innovative Entrepreneurial Experiences at Schools, provides easy examples for teachers.
The negative side is is that there is a lot of information in English, and sometimes it is difficult to follow it if you have an intermediate level of English. Moreover, as a suggestion, I think it could be a good idea to have it in a download version to print the most interesting parts.

This module is a little bit complex and theoretical. Good practices at the end are relevant.

This module highlights a very important aspect of education: entrepreneurship education in schools, vocational schools and universities, which will definitely have a positive impact on entrepreneurial dynamism in our economies, on young people’s employability.
To this end it not only raises teachers and counsellors’ awareness about the benefits of enterprise projects but also provides them with invaluable tips on how to implement such enterprise projects at their own school. Teachers and counsellors will find practical advice on the necessary steps in creating an enterprise project at school, how an enterprise works or how to search for funds such as crowdfunding. The module also proposes teachers, educators or guidance counsellors a series of best practices to get inspired from.

The choice of topics and the study of them provide a valuable source of information to teachers, trainers, counselors...
The best practices and online resources add a useful complement to theory, by presenting concrete examples of experiences, projects, exchanges between peers...
