Entrepreneurship Education at Schools

Description

Entrepreneurship education teaches students from different socioeconomic classes to think outside the frame and aims to strengthen their unconventional abilities and strengths. Moreover, this education, which puts children one step ahead of others in creating opportunities, guarantees raising individuals who are sensitive to social equality, while at the same time helping students to lay the foundations of a strong self-confidence that they will carry with them throughout their lives. Moreover, it is a known fact that it has a positive effect on the economy in countries where entrepreneurship education is given.

Entrepreneurship education has been defined as “a collection of formalized teachings that informs, trains, and educates anyone interested in participating in socioeconomic development through a project to promote entrepreneurship awareness, business creation, or small business development”.

Entrepreneurship education shows young people that mistakes can be made and learnt from.This contrasts the current education system, whereby answers are branded ‘wrong’ when they mismatch what has been taught, and students are taught that exam results will independently define your success in life.

Entrepreneurship education focuses on developing real-world skills that will help students live extraordinary lives in a rapidly changing world, and our goal is to train students who can keep up with their teachers in this new world.

Entrepreneurship education also teaches students some vital skills;
Working with the team
Preparing effective presentations and presenting them to the public
The ability to collect and analyze data
Effective use of social media
The ability to solve complex problems
Increasing creativity and curiosity
Learning by doing and living
