Entrepreneurship curriculum in secondary schools programme

The Government of Angola decided to introduce entrepreneurship education in secondary schools, with the objective to promote an entrepreneurial culture and entrepreneurial skills among the youth. The aim is to build an entrepreneurial foundation to create a sustainable and dynamic private sector, considered an important factor in the fight against poverty.
The objective of this project is to support the Ministry of Education's endeavor to develop an entrepreneurship curriculum for the secondary school system, consisting of syllabi, teachers guides, students textbooks, teacher training manual, monitoring and evaluation tools and assessment guidelines, and to pilot test them in 30 schools in nine provinces, with about 3200 participating students and 60 teachers.
Based on the experiences in the pilot test, the curriculum materials will be finalized and teacher trainers trained for the nation-wide roll out in 2012, which will potentially reach 500,000 students.
