ABSTRACT
Fostering the development of entrepreneurial potential among youth can have a significant impact on economic development. Prior research demonstrates that secondary students exposed to entrepreneurship education have a higher motivation to achieve, a greater sense of personal control, and greater self-esteem. Aimed at identifying strategies to best prepare teachers to teach entrepreneurship in secondary schools, this research concludes that training should focus heavily on front-end entrepreneurial thinking process; opportunities exist to develop on-line training and curriculum resources; and emphasis should be placed on experiential exercises and case studies.
