Entrepreneurship education workshop for Egyptian teachers

The two-week-long entrepreneurship education workshop will engage over 100 teachers from technical schools in Luxor, Egypt. The training is part of a Japan-funded Entrepreneurship Curriculum Programme (ECP), which will promote and nurture a culture of entrepreneurship among students in secondary technical schools, and prepare them to become productive members of society, creating value and opportunities for themselves, as well as for their communities.

During the workshop, the teachers will acquire both theoretical and practical knowledge about entrepreneurship education, as well as jointly develop competences, learning outcomes, assessment tools, and syllabus for entrepreneurship classes.

This is the first step towards launching an ECP in Luxor and upscaling it to other governorates in Upper Egypt. The first ECP in Egypt was successfully implemented in the city of Qena during the school year 2014/2015, when over 100 teachers and 2,000 students received entrepreneurship training.

Over the years, UNIDO has supported more than 10 countries in developing entrepreneurial culture and skills, as well as enhancing youth's technical and learning capability through the ECP.
