Abstract

Concrete steps are taken on entrepreneurship education in Turkey, as in a lot of countries. One example to such concrete steps is the treatment of entrepreneurship as one of the skills which students are to be provided in curricula from primary education to higher education. However, as entrepreneurship has just started to be focused on in education, observation of other countries engaged in it for a long time is important. Finland is a country which is always shown as a model for entrepreneurship education in the reports of the European Commission and is one of those countries which conduct most scientific research on this subject. Thus, the way Finnish education system handles entrepreneurship education should be examined. In this sense, the present study aims to explain how Finnish education system handles entrepreneurship education; what steps they take in this matter; and what kinds of supporting elements they use. This is a compilation work. It gives brief information about primary education and secondary education, but focuses most attention on teacher training. 

Keywords: Primary education, secondary education, Finnish teacher education, entrepreneurship education
