Good Practice Information

This is a strategic approach to promoting entrepreneurship education, involving over 50 regional partners. Although the education system addresses employability, there had been limited focus on entrepreneurship in schools. Initially, the plan focused on promoting mini-enterprises in schools and working with the entire teaching profession. Through participation in YES, changes have been introduced. There is now stronger focus on addressing attitudinal issues. The Regional Action Plan (RAP) focuses on promo ting an enterprise culture, encouraging risk-taking, problem-solving and creativity. The approach also supports teachers through the production of practical materials and the facilitation of contact with businesses.

Evidence of success

More than 45 public and private organizations are involved in implementing activities.
