Entrepreneurship Education in the Arab States

First project component well underway

UNESCO-UNEVOC and the UNESCO Offices in Beirut and Amman are working with the National Centre for Human Resources Development in Jordan (a UNEVOC Centre) on the implementation of the first component of a project entitled “Entrepreneurship Education in the Arab States”. This four-year activity (2009-2012), which is funded by the StratREAL Foundation (UK), aims to support Arab countries in the development of educational policies that aim to include the concept of “entrepreneurship” in their formal education systems.

Component I of the project identifies, understands and systematizes examples of good practice that already exist in the region, but whose outcomes are not widely known. In addition, the status of entrepreneurship education in the educational systems in Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Tunisia are assessed. On 17-18 August 2009, the research team that is conducting the case studies met at the premises of NCHRD in Amman to finalize the framework for the studies. The first draft of the case studies will be available in December 2009. A regional synthesis report will be prepared in Arabic and English by the end of March 2010. It will be an important input for countries that aim to develop strategic plans for the incorporation of entrepreneurship education into their educational systems and will be disseminated in the region and beyond.


UNESCO and StratREAL Foundation sign partnership agreement on entrepreneurship education
