European Schoolnet Academy via Independent

This course may be unavailable.


This MOOC's aim is to train and empower teachers in fostering the sense of initiative and the entrepreneurial mind-set of their students by developing innovative and creative attitudes and skills. The sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is the ability to turn ideas into action through creativity, innovation, and risk-taking as well as the ability to plan and manage projects. It is a key competence that can be developed through any school subject, from primary to secondary and beyond. It does not necessarily involve a specific school subject. Rather, it requires a way of teaching in which experiential learning and project work have the main role. This MOOC has been designed with the intention to provide concrete examples for the practical implementation of the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp). Each module consists of several videos, illustrating lesson plans, teaching activities, or possible resources that could enable teachers, and educators to strengthen entrepreneurial skills in their students. We challenge you to use these resources in your classrooms and nurture your students’ desire to solve problems creatively and to take on opportunities in any social context.


Module 1: Engaging students through entrepreneurship education
Module 2: Enabling students to take the future in their hands
Module 3: Making good use of resources
Module 4: Achieving goals by putting plans into action
