GET TO KNOW THE BRAZILIAN NATIONAL PROGRAM OF ENTREPRENEURIAL EDUCATION

Brazil still faces many challenges when it comes to entrepreneurial education. In the world ranking, we are among the last countries to spread the culture of entrepreneurship in schools, ranking 56th out of 65 on the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2018 (GEM – download the survey for free here). But in recent years, 4 million children and young people no longer feature on this statistic. They were reached by the actions of the Brazilian National Entrepreneurial Education Program (PNEE), created by Sebrae in 2013.

 

Since then, 120 thousand teachers have been trained in the program’s methodology, which has partnerships with 6 thousand other institutions throughout Brazil. Do you want to understand what the National Entrepreneurial Education Program is and how it has changed the entrepreneurial education scenario in the country? Check out this post.

 

How the Brazilian National Program for Entrepreneurial Education works

With the goal of making the discussions around entrepreneurship broader and more accessible in Brazilian schools and educational institutions, the National Program for Entrepreneurial Education takes contents and methodologies related to the theme to the curricula of the different levels of education, from elementary to higher education.

 

The PNEE is implemented through partnerships with educational institutions and education departments, so that schools receive free learning resources. Teachers then develop entrepreneurship skills and are responsible for disseminating the methodology in the classrooms.

 

But those who think that the National Program for Entrepreneurial Education aims only to train future entrepreneurs are wrong. The focus of the work is to promote awareness around entrepreneurship as behavior, focused on life projects, and not only as a tool for creating business. Thus, young people become important pieces for the transformation of their reality and that of their communities.

 

Products and services of the National Program of Entrepreneurial Education

The PNEE offers a wide range of products and services, which fit the most different needs of educators and the school. Meet some of them:

  • Young Entrepreneurs: first steps – developed for elementary school students, the course stimulates the students’ curiosity and critical thinking, helping them to understand and plan the steps to make their dreams come true. The program consists of nine independent modules, each with a workload of 20 to 30 hours.
  • Entrepreneurship for higher education: discipline, with a workload of 80 hours, which takes the debate around entrepreneurial behavior to the students of higher education, guiding them on the construction of a model and the elaboration of a business plan.
  • Growing and doing business as entrepreneurs: with a focus on students who wish to dive deeply into the challenges of the labour market, the training prepares these young people to identify opportunities and create solutions, through experimental meetings that have the planning of the future through entrepreneurial behaviors as the main premise.
  • Young Entrepreneur in the Country: the program Entrepreneur in the Country seeks to train young people who seek to continue family business, especially in rural properties. During their training, they develop a business outlook for the practices in the country, understanding how to expand opportunities and consequently the family income.
  • Entrepreneurship for Professional Education: like the course for higher education, this training is implemented through a discipline inserted in the workload of vocational courses or initial and continuing education. Students are stimulated to think about their career, having entrepreneurship as a possibility to build a life project.

 

These are just some of the solutions offered by the PNEE throughout the national territory. Are you interested? To participate, contact the Sebrae of your state by the phone (+55) 0800 570 0800 and learn more about the PNEE in your region.
