Conclusions reached by

the guests

Snippets from the group report:

„… we learned so much… This information should be of interest to Head Teachers, Teachers, School Advisers, Local and Regional Education Authorities, Local and National Government, policy makers, all employers, local and regional knowledge transfer initiatives:

1.There is an impressive level of innovative activity in Polish schools within the 4 curriculum levels, or as Renate Schubert said; “there are many lighthouses in Polish schools”;


6.It is important to encourage discussion of questions that inform the development of entrepreneurial activity in order to understand what motivates e.g. “are entrepreneurs born or made”?


13.It is important to find a balance in the curriculum; do not neglect core skills (e.g. reading, writing, arithmetic) in the pursuit of entrepreneurship;


15.Schools must co-operate with businesses and ensure young people are given opportunities to gain experience of working life;


18.Developing self-determined learning or ‘Learning to Learn’ skills is important.


24.Schools need to prepare young people for adult life.

25.Don’t forget the training of adults; adults (and parents) need re-skilling also.
