3.8 Development of Entrepreneurship Competence

There is not a standalone strategy/legal framework on development of entrepreneurship competence. Националната стратегия за младежта  2010-2020 (National Youth Strategy) has one key area of interest Active economic participation and entrepreneurship of young people. Under the    Национална програма за малдежта (the National program of youth.) different projects for developing entrepreneurship skills and competence sin the young people have been developed. 

Annually, the Ministry of Economy implements the „stARTs” 3 Project - entrepreneurship education for students from art schools and sports schools. The aim is to promote the entrepreneurial abilities of students in arts schools and gradually to teach entrepreneurship training as an integral part of the curricula of these schools as they are under the guidance of the Ministry of Culture and in their curricula there is no entrepreneurship education. Students in these schools have a future for entrepreneurs and participation in the creative industries, whose potential is growing and their share in the gross added value is increasing.
