About the Project

We mean serious business

Ent-teach stimulates entrepreneurship teaching at vocational colleges and incubators by providing teachers/trainers with practical materials and tools to educate, inspire and motivate students for entrepreneurship. Students will be made aware of the possibilities to actually pursue a career as an entrepreneur and learn along the way. 

About the project and its products

On the www.ent-teach.eu platform there are 7 units available in 5 languages: English, Spanish, Dutch, Polish and Greek. 


All 7 units are supported by practical learning activities, videos, case studies and self-assessment questions to be used by the teacher/trainer. 

Ent-teach relates to the early phase of company creation: idea generation, opportunity recognition. It makes young potential entrepreneurs understand that everything can be a business. It also provides practical guidelines for market analysis, financial management, IPR and exit strategies. 


The materials are aimed at the vocational school teacher/trainer to be used in and outside the class room to engage students and to encourage them to pursue a career as an entrepreneur. Incubators could apply the materials to their vocational (level) pre-start-ups.



By applying the results of this project in VET schools:  

  • Teachers gain insight to competences that are required to become an  entrepreneur
  • Teachers can involve entrepreneurs (former students) in the classroom and together address the students of today
  • Teachers can better interest, support and educate VET students to pursue a career as an entrepreneur
