Further reading on "Entrepreneurship education and training"


UNESCO-UNEVOC has compiled a short selection of academic or professional articles that might help to clarify the signification and the use of the term "Entrepreneurship education". It goes thus beyond the definitions stored in TVETipedia while not pretending to offer an exhaustive bibliography on the topic.

Deriving from the previous reference, this report focuses on Entrepreneurship education in Ghana, Kenya and Mozambique. Based on those national cases, the authors go deeper into the challenges and limits of entrepreneurship education programmes. In the selected quotes, the lack of scientific data on "EET" is well shown alongside with the difficulties to adapt programmes to diverse audience targets.
