Entrepreneurship education: implications for teacher training

  • E Gouws University of South Africa


An unemployment rate of 32.6% emphasises the absolute necessity for a strong entrepreneurial-driven economy. Entrepreneurship Education is the one variable that appears most consistently in programmes and strategies that governments and policymakers around the world embark on to create an entrepreneurial-driven economy. In South Africa Entrepreneurship Education is part of the learning area: Economic and Management Sciences, which forms part of Curriculum 2005. The aim of this article is to explore the implications of Entrepreneurship Education for teacher training, and to suggest some guidelines for compiling a curriculum for teacher training.
