ESP growth in Turkey01 September 2017
The Action “Strengthening Entrepreneurship Education in Turkey and EU”, co-funded by the European Union and the Republic of Turkey under the umbrella of the Civil Society Dialogue Programme and implemented between February 2016 and July 2017 offered the opportunity to 4,000 students in Turkey to take the Entrepreneurial Skills Pass (ESP) certification.
The Action was undertaken and managed by JA Europe, coordinating the activities at the European level, and Genc Basari Egitim Vakfi (JA Turkey), responsible of the implementation at the national level. The activities were also supported by private and public institutions that helped to raise awareness, generate endorsement from different stakeholders, which in return positively affected the number of schools, teachers and students involved across the country.
Under an official protocol aimed at promoting entrepreneurship at K12 level and implementing Junior Achievement’s entrepreneurship education programmes, JA Turkey cooperated with the Provincial Directorates of National Education in six cities across the country (Bilecik, Diyarbakır, Eskisehir, Istanbul, Izmir and Sanlıurfa).
