Qualitative case study of mini-company experiences in five European countries

New cross-country study confirms the positive impact of JA Company Programme on students and society
Preliminary results indicate that students involved in JA Company programme for 100 hours or more do better in several areas.
Teaching entrepreneurship is a modern and different way of teaching. -We need training, teachers say
Entrepreneurship education is turning away from subject-orientated learning, and is adopting a more competence-orientated approach. Teachers all over Europe require more training to be able to teach in this modern way.
Cooperation between education system and labour market is too weak, shows new international research
The majority of teachers, parents and business people report that institutional cooperation between the formal education system and the labour market is weak.
Students participating in practical entrepreneurship education have higher school motivation
Students participating in practical entrepreneurship education are more motivated to go to school than others. Students with 100 hours or more Company Program-activity score better on intrinsic motivation and school effort compared to those with low activity or none.
Survey among 7000 students confirms: If you want to increase job creation, offer the JA company programme in schools
Students who have had 100 hours or more of the JA Company Programme report better business skills and prefer to be self-employed.
A deep dive is better than a light touch. 100 hours of training in entrepreneurship education gives the best results!
Students using more than 100 hours in the JA Company Programme bear its influence more than those spending less time in it.
Girls benefit from entrepreneurship education at a young age even more than boys
The JA Company Programme has given many young people the confidence that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to start a business. Studies indicate that short term effects are particularly strong for young women.
Entrepreneurship education is new for parents. They need to be informed and involved
The majority of 3500 parents participating in a survey have a positive attitude to EE. But they also feel uninformed about EE. Currently, parents play a minor role in entrepreneurship education (EE). A new survey in five countries confirms that parents are neither seen as an obstacle or a driver for spreading EE.
