Entrepreneurship Education (EPE) in the Arab States is a joint project between UNESCO and StratREAL Foundation, UK, which included two main components:
Component I: The collection, systematization and dissemination of innovative and successful experiences of EPE from different countries of the region (2009–2010);
Component II: Providing technical support for the development of strategic plans to facilitate the incorporation of the concept of EPE in education systems (2011–2012).
The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for TVET in Bonn, Germany has taken the lead in the implementation of the project, in co-operation with UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in the Arab States–Beirut. As a result of Component I, four case studies on entrepreneurship education in Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Tunisia, as well as a regional synthesis report, were published in Arabic and English. UNESCO has provided technical support to four Arab countries during Component II of the project (Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Oman). Activities focused on policy and coordination; curriculum development; teacher training; and connectivity / networking. Based on cooperation with Member States in the region, a Regional Workshop on Entrepreneurship Education had been organized in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain (10-12 December 2012), to exchange experiences between officials, experts, and institutions on integrating EPE competences in the education systems (general education and TVET programmes).
