We will also speak to how teachers can expand their skillset with Entre-Ed’s Professional Development course, which is now available with all ESB Licenses from Certiport.

The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) ignites the entrepreneurial mindset with unique learning experiences that empower all students to own their futures. In this webinar, we dove into NFTE’s curriculum and in-class resources that help educators spark the entrepreneurial spirit in their classrooms, including the Entrepreneurial Mindset Index (EMI).
Public-Private Partnerships to Promote Entrepreneurship Education
Empowering students with entrepreneurial skills is a great first step to help students look around and discover ways to make the world a better place. Bringing these skills into the classroom requires support from governments and businesses.
In this webinar, we sat down with government representatives and private business employees to get their thoughts on how public-private partnerships can promote entrepreneurship education.
