Offering specific training to teachers is crucial in order to make entrepreneurship education generally available and effective: two High Level Symposia was organized on 7-8 April in Budapest and on 13-15 July in Istanbul to tackle that issue. The aim was to bring together practitioners and policy makers from across Europe to determine how to develop effective teacher education systems for entrepreneurship. Tis report is based on the contents of the two Symposia, and includes a “Budapest Agenda on Enabling Teachers for Entrepreneurship Education”. The report is a repository of information and good practice, for both policy makers and practitioners, on how to enable teachers to take on a new role in the classroom (as "facilitators" of learning), use innovative and entrepreneurial methods of teaching, help young people to develop entrepreneurial mindsets and skills.
