Abstract:The Entrepreneurship and Career Education Programme ‘Edu ja Tegu’ [Success and Action in Estonian] was launched by the Ministry of Education and Research in 2016. It aims to give all students an opportunity to experience entrepreneurship and build entrepreneurial competences applicable throughout life in diverse cultural, economic, social and other contexts. This includes having students take a more active role in designing their own career path. By developing the sense of initiative, entrepreneurial competencies and providing the learners relevant experiences, everyone will have more opportunities in shaping their career, irrespective of what they want to be in future – a responsible employee, an entrepreneur or an active citizen. Cooperation between the education system and business helps to raise awareness about the importance of entrepreneurship in our wellbeing.
Keywords: Entrepreneurship education programme, entrepreneurship system.
